PM ally says Iraq blocs agree to coalition talks
BAGHDAD, Mar 2 (Reuters) An ally of Iraqi Prime Minister Ibrahim al-Jaafari said after discussions among leaders of the main political parties today that all had agreed to continue talks on a national unity coalition.
Jawad al-Maliki, a spokesman for the ruling Shi'ite Alliance, told a televised news conference: ''They agreed to continue the dialogue.'' Among those present at the talks, shown briefly on state television, was Adnan al-Dulaimi, a leader of the Sunni Accordance Front which had said last week it was boycotting talks on forming a government in protest at sectarian violence.
