President Barham Saleh tweeted on his own account on the social networking site Twitter, praising what he described as bilateral relations between Washington and Baghdad.

Saleh met with US President Donald Trump on the sidelines of the General Assembly of the United Nations in its 74th session, which published footage of his and his American counterpart with the officials of diplomacy in the two countries.

“These shots with President Donald Trump dealt with strengthening bilateral relations with the United States as well as praising the stability achieved in Iraq, as well as the importance of supporting Iraq in completing the victory against terrorism with reconstruction and economic transformation.”

Saleh explained that the regional situation was reviewed and emphasis was placed on solving problems through dialogue, based on common interests in confronting extremism.

The footage released by the president showed Iraq’s newly appointed ambassador to Washington, Jaafar al-Sadr, a cousin of Sadr’s leader Moqtada al-Sadr.

Which prompted Iraqi media to say that the leaders of the Sadrist movement was hostile to the United States, but this time sent an ambassador to America.
