Iraqi PM seeks support

2010-10-16 20:32
Baghdad - An adviser says Iraq's Prime Minister will travel to Iran and Jordan to seek support for his bid to win a second term more than seven months after national elections.

Nouri al-Maliki is struggling to remain in power after his Shi'ite alliance narrowly lost the March parliamentary vote to a Sunni-backed bloc.

His adviser Ali al-Moussawi said on Saturday that the prime minister will assure the neighbouring states that none of Iraq's major political constituencies will be excluded from a new government if they back his second term.

Al-Maliki will meet Jordan's King Abdullah II on Sunday. He'll meet with Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and the Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei in Tehran on Monday.

He will also visit Turkey and Egypt next week.
