Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kadhimi and US President Joe Biden met by phone on Tuesday to discuss a host of issues.
“I spoke to @POTUS today. We reaffirmed our commitment to bolstering Iraqi-US ties for the benefit of our peoples and cooperation in fighting Daesh to ensure regional peace and stability. Strategic Dialogue continues to serve as a roadmap for the future,” Al-Kadhimi said on Twitter.
The talks followed a string of attacks on US and foreign troops in Iraq after the assassination of Iranian Gen. Qasem Soleimani in a US drone strike in January last year.
The latest incident was Monday’s rocket attack against Baghdad’s highly secured Green Zone, an area that hosts most foreign diplomatic missions, including the US embassy, according to Iraq’s Defense Ministry.
Two Katyusha missiles landed in the area, but no injuries were reported.
Washington cites the Shia militias supported by Iran for such attacks.
