US Secretary of state Mike Pompeo released a statement on the political situation in Iraq.
“The United States looks forward to the formation of a new Iraqi government that can fight back against the COVID-19 pandemic, improve the country’s economic situation, and bring weapons under state control,” the document says. – We welcome the fact that Shia, Sunni and Kurdish political leaders seem to have reached a consensus on forming a government, and we hope that the new government will put the interests of Iraq and the needs of the Iraqi people first.
