BAGHDAD — Secretary of State John Kerry told Prime Minister Nuri Kamal al-Maliki during a visit to Baghdad on Sunday that Iraq must take steps to stop the shipment of Iranian weapons to Syria if it wanted to participate in broader discussions about that country’s future.

Mr. Kerry’s visit was the first by an American secretary of state since Hillary Rodham Clinton went to Iraq in 2009, and it came amid growing concern over Iraq’s role in the Syrian conflict.
