Saleh al-Mutlaq
Head of Al Arabiya Coalition Saleh al-Mutlaq has described as "disappointing" statements by Head of the National Alliance Ammar al-Hakim about political settlement in Iraq.
"Hakim earlier ruled out the possibility of reaching any political settlement in the country amid the ongoing bomb attacks," Mutlaq said in statements on Friday.

"Hakim's remarks indicate that some political parties in Iraq are involved in these terrorist attacks," Mutlaq pointed out.

He also urged making reforms to security and intelligence bodies, as well as government's policies to reach desirable political settlement.

"The political settlement should be based on correct and positive values," he concluded.
