Saairun denies Sadr's meeting with Soleimani in Beirut

Leader of Saairun Alliance Muqtada al-Sadr
A source from Saairun Alliance led by Muqtada al-Sadr denied on Sunday reports about a meeting between Sadr and Iranian Revolutionary Guards' Quds Force Chief Qassem Soleimani in Beirut.

The alleged meeting was held to discuss the nomination of pro-Iran Falih al-Fayadh for the interior ministry in the new government of Adil Abd al-Mahdi. Saairun has reiterated rejecting Fayadh for the post all over the past months, since Abd al-Mahdi took office in October.

"There are some parties that publish such false news to undermine the reform project that Sadr has launched," the member said.
