“An advisor to Iraq’s prime minister rejected Nouri Al-Maliki’s meeting with the ringleader of the terrorist Mujahedin Khalq Organization, Masoud Rajavi”, as posted on a number of Persian websites in the past two days.
Speaking to IRNA in Baghdad Sunday, Yasin Majid expressed doubt whether Rajavi was in Iraq and added that the news is wrong and no meeting has taken place.
He also denied news and reports on Maliki’s visit to Tehran.
Another unnamed source in Iraqi Prime Minister’s Office also said that if Maliki was due to meet a person, it would be announced officially.
All his meetings with local and foreign figures are declared through official statements, it noted.
