Saudi Arabia has sent a strongly worded letter to the United States categorically objecting to the return of Iraq's former Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki for a third term in office.

The Kingdom's Foreign Minister Saud Al-Faisal sent the letter to his US counterpart John Kerry during their last meeting in Paris to discuss the Iraqi issue, a source has told Middle East Monitor news website.

The meeting was attended by UAE Foreign Minister Abdullah Bin Zayed and his Jordanian opposite number Nasser Judeh.

Prince Al-Faisal told Mr Kerry in the letter that Saudi Arabia 'categorically refuses' the survival of or the return of al-Maliki's rule in Iraq.

The Saudi minister told Mr Kerry that Washington should not even consider such an option, stressing that the official Arab regimes around Iraq will not cooperate with Al-Maliki and will not welcome his presence, and pointed out that his country will reject any US pressure in this regard.
