Trump discusses withdrawing his forces from Iraq with Saleh in DavosUS President Donald Trump intends to speak with President Barham Saleh at the World Economic Forum, which is taking place from January 21 to 24 in Davos, about the exit of his forces from Iraq.

The “CBS” television channel, which reported the news, citing its sources in the American administration, said that “consultations are under way on the details of the agenda of the two countries’ heads of state meeting, and the White House is optimistic about the possibility of conducting such negotiations.”

And the attacks of the American army since last December 29 on the popular crowd, and the assassination of his deputy commander Abu Mahdi Al-Muhandis and the Iranian general Qassem Soleimani near the Baghdad airport, have provoked a wide response from the Iraqi authorities, which criticized the actions of the Americans.

On January 5, the Iraqi parliament adopted a resolution demanding the full withdrawal of all foreign forces from the country.

But Trump refused to heed this demand, and threatened Baghdad with “unprecedented sanctions.”
