TEHRAN (IQNA) – The US is not happy that Mohammed Tawfiq Allawi has been named Iraq’s new prime minister, a Lebanese daily wrote.


In its analysis, the Al-Akhbar Daily wrote that the reason for Washington’s discontent is that it prefers insecurity in Iraq and is against any move that is aimed at bringing calm to the country, website reported.

It added that other developments in Iraq, including influential Shia cleric Muqtada al-Sadr’s call on his supporters to cooperate with security forces to restore peace to Iraq, have also caused US discontent.

A former communications minister, Allawi was named prime minister-designate by rival factions Saturday after weeks of political deadlock.

The selection of Allawi, 66, to replace Adel Abdul-Mahdi was the product of many back-room talks over months between rival parties.
