Iraqi PM Abadi enters into alliance with Sadr

TEHRAN, Jun. 24 (MNA) – The Iraqi prime minister’s Victory list and cleric Moqtada al-Sadr’s Sairoon bloc announced Sat. they will enter an alliance to form a new government.

According to Iraqi al-Sumeria TV, Abadi and Sadr declared their decision in a news conference after holding a two-hour meeting yesterday afternoon.
