Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki and his security officials are to blame for the rise of Sunni Muslim insurgents who have seized parts of Iraq, the country's foreign minister said.

The comments by Hoshiyar Zebari, a Kurd, are likely to worsen relations between Maliki's and the Kurds, complicating efforts to form a power-sharing government, Reuters reported.

"Surely the man who is responsible for the general policies bears the responsibility and the general commander of the armed force, the ministers of defence and interior also bear these responsibilities," Zebari told al-Arabiya television.

"There are other sides who bear responsibility, maybe political partners, but the biggest and greatest responsibility is on the person in charge of public policies."
