BAGHDAD —Iraq's prime minister will travel to Iran and Jordan to seek support for his bid to win a second term more than seven months after national elections, an adviser said Saturday.

Nouri al-Maliki is struggling to remain in power after his Shiite alliance narrowly lost the March parliamentary vote to a Sunni-backed bloc.

His adviser Ali al-Moussawi said that the prime minister will assure the neighboring states that none of Iraq's major political constituencies will be excluded from a new government if they back his second term.

Al-Maliki will meet Jordan's King Abdullah II on Sunday. He'll meet with Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and the Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei in Teheran on Monday.

He will also visit Turkey and Egypt next week.
