He pointed out that “the sheikhs and dignitaries of Iraq will meet with al-Sadr in the coming days and put the terms of the initiative to him, and then we will listen to al-Sadr’s answer to the initiative, and then it will be announced through the media.”

Yesterday, Thursday, a number of Iraqi tribal sheikhs took the initiative to heal the rift and reunion between the leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr, and the leader of the State of Law coalition, Nuri al-Maliki, after the incident of leaked audio recordings attributed to the latter.

The head of the State of Law coalition, Nuri al-Maliki, warned, on Wednesday, of a new wave of “fabrication”, noting that his hand was extended to the leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr.

Al-Maliki said, “The issue of the leaks will be long, and there are parties that want to ignite sedition,” explaining that “some of the words found in the leaks were cut out of my speeches.”

With regard to the relationship between him and al-Sadr, al-Maliki indicated that “it is possible that I met with a direct meeting with al-Sadr,” noting that “some tribal sheikhs took the initiative to restore relations between me and al-Sadr.”

The leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr, demanded the leader of the State of Law coalition, Nuri al-Maliki, to quit the political process and surrender himself, following the leaked audio recordings, attributed to the latter.

Recorded audio leaks, transmitted by social networking sites, were said to be from Al-Maliki, which show an unprecedented attack by the latter against Al-Sadr and leaders in the Popular Mobilization, as well as an attack on parties and political forces, the army, the police and a number of countries.
