The Spokesman of the leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr, has confirmed reports about Sadr’s imminent tour to Europe, including a meeting with Pope Francis in the Vatican.

In a press statement, Jaafar al-Moussawi added that Sadr received an official invitation also to visit Egypt.

Sadr seeks to open up to the countries that want Iraq better and refrain from interfering in its internal affairs, Moussawi further added, noting that the visit will encourage investments in this war-torn country, particularly in the reconstruction of liberated areas.
