BAGHDAD: Kurdish ministers who suspended their participation in the government of outgoing Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki have rejoined the administration, Iraq's outgoing foreign minister said Wednesday.

"I am back in Baghdad as foreign minister," Hoshiyar Zebari, a Kurd, told Reuters. Maliki infuriated Kurdish leaders by accusing them of harboring terrorists after ISIS militants swept through northern Iraq in June.
