Report: Fugitive Iraqi VP Meets Mossad Officers in Turkey

Iraq’s fugitive Vice-President Tareq al-Hashemi has met with Israeli Mossad agents in Turkey during the last few days, a local media revealed on Wednesday.

Turkish-language daily, Melliyat, quoted Ankara officials as saying that Hashemi has had a meeting with three agents of the Israeli spy agency, Mossad, and asked them for a visit to Tel Aviv.

The Turkish official also told Melliyat that Hashemi intends to use Israeli influence on Washington to persuade US officials to return him to power.

Hashemi, who has was given a death sentence last month by an Iraqi court for betraying his country and orchestrating terrorist operations in Iraq, had a similar meeting with Mossad agents in Turkey last month.

Al Mustakbal Al-Iraqi daily quoted informed sources in the Iraqi Kurdistan region as saying that Hashemi has used the meeting to send a letter to Zionist politicians and the US intelligence bodies.

The report quoted the informed sources as saying that Hashmi is getting closer to Israel after he was disappointed at the US officials’ assistance.

The report added that Hashemi is willing to visit to Israel in a bid to reach an agreement with Zionist regime officials in practice. More
