Iraq's Sadr warns

Prominent Iraqi Shia cleric Muqtada al-Sadr says he has submitted a proposal to the United Nations to hold a public debate with all political factions in Iraq, as the country’s political crisis continues to deepen.  

In a post on his Twitter account on Saturday, Sadr wrote that he has not received a tangible response from the Iraqi political parties in this regard, adding that their response did not address the demands of the people or the revolutionaries.  

“We submitted a proposal to the United Nations for open dialogue or rather a live public debate with all the political parties,” Sadr wrote, adding, “But we did not see a tangible response from them,” and they did not care about what is happening.

“Therefore, we ask everyone to wait for our next step regarding the policy of ignoring what has happened to Iraq and its people as a result of corruption and dependency,” he warned.

Sadr further noted that there would be no secret dialogue from today on, stressing, “I do not hide anything from my people, and I will not associate with the corrupt.”

He also claimed that he had given a lot of concessions for the sake of the nation and peace in Iraq, saying “we are waiting to see what they have for [implementation of] reforms to save Iraq.”
