US State Department: We Will Continue To Support Iraq And Abadi

BAGHDAD / US State Department announced a "continuing US support for a unified and democratic Iraq, expressing the aspirations of all Iraqis."

State Department spokesman John Kirby said "his country will continue its support for Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi in leading battles against Daesh terrorist inside Iraq."

He expressed his country's concern of approval of the parliament to the law of the popular mobilization forces by saying, "We do not want in the future to increase the existing sectarian already during this time," But he said, "it is parliamentarian internal case like other legislations."

The House of Representatives passed, last Saturday, with a large majority, the popular mobilization law amid opposition and non- attendance by Iraqi forces coalition and Watania blocs.
