US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Saturday telephoned Prime Minister Haider Abadi.
A statement issued by the US State Department quoted Pompeo as confirming his country’s support for Iraq’s efforts to form a moderate and national government according to constitutional timing.
For his part, foreign ministry spokeswoman Heather Naort said in a statement that “Pompeo assured Abadi of the importance of maintaining the sovereignty of Iraq during this critical time.”
It is expected that the new Iraqi parliament will convene next Monday after legislative elections held in May 2018.
The meeting is held under the chairmanship of the oldest members to elect the President of the Council and his deputies.
