Iraqi PM, U.S. official hold phone talks over cooperation



The Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi and U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Friday discussed economic, political and security cooperation between the two countries.

A statement by the prime minister’s office said that al-Kadhimi held a phone call with Pompeo and the two sides “discussed the global economic crisis and its impact on oil prices and the Iraqi economy.”

The talks came after al-Kadhimi was sworn in on May 6 as the new prime minister in Iraq, following the approval of the parliament on most of his cabinet members.
