U.S. Ambassador Zalmay Khalilzad is leading a drive for major changes in the charter to try to win crucial Sunni Arab support, according to Shiites, Sunnis and Kurds involved in the last-ditch negotiations.
Khalilzad in recent days agreed to take six Sunni demands to Shiite and Kurdish leaders for intensified negotiations.
