BAGHDAD, Aug 20 (Reuters) - Kurdish ministers who suspended their participation in the government of outgoing Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki have rejoined the administration, Iraq's outgoing foreign minister said on 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 Islamic State militants swept through northern Iraq in June. (Reporting by Michael Georgy, editing by John Stonestreet)
