WAAR-DUHOK:

US mission in Iraq denounced the reports published by Arab media on a meeting between a senior US envoy and a top Iranian military commander.

The Kuwaiti al-Jarida newspaper had claimed that Brett McGurk, Special US Presidential Envoy and Qasem Soleimani, Commander of the Quds Force of Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), had a secret meeting last Tuesday (September 11).

The meeting was allegedly convened to discuss the formation of a new Iraqi government, according to the Kuwaiti daily.

‘The Embassy is aware of false media reports that Special Presidential Envoy Brett McGurk and an Iranian General met to discuss forming a new Iraqi government.

The reports are fake news.

No such meeting ever happened,’ the US Embassy Spokesman Charles Cole said on the embassy Twitter account Sunday.
