Iraq leader meets rebel groups to talk peace

The Times (UK) reports.

NOURI AL-MALIKI, the Iraqi Prime Minister, has held face-to-face talks with insurgent groups after he announced a reconciliation plan designed to bring an end to the violence in the country, his office told The Times last night.

“These have been direct and indirect contacts with Mr al-Maliki from different groups since the initiative was announced . . . Part of it was direct and the other part was indirect through intermediaries,” Yassin Majid, Mr al-Maliki’s director of media relations, said.
