An informed source - Prime Minister Adel Abdel-Mahdi refuses to respond to Trumps contactsInformed sources confirmed that Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi refused during the past two days to respond to several calls made by US President Donald Trump and his Foreign Minister Mike Pompeo, against the background of the aggression in which two of the top leaders of the victory were martyred.

According to the sources, the information indicates that Abdul-Mahdi informed his close associates that his refusal to respond to the contacts that the Americans sought to clarify their position on what happened, is because of Trump’s succession, and he reneged on the covenants he made during his recent call that struck the popular crowd in Al-Qa’im not to violate Iraqi sovereignty. He stressed that there is no point in talking to an arrogant administration that does not respect its promises.

Abdul-Mahdi directed that any American contact with Iraq will be through the Iraqi Ministry of Foreign Affairs exclusively.

This is the first time since 2003 that an Iraqi Prime Minister refused to respond to the communications of an American president … and it seems that it was an early indication of the government’s decision, which Parliament voted today to expel American forces.
