Iraqi Prime Minister Adil Abdul Mahdi

Baghdad ( – Iraqi Prime Minister Adil Abdul Mahdi discussed the week-long protests that have gripped his country in a phone call with U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, his office said on Monday.

“The Prime Minister reviewed the latest security developments and the return to normal life after the curfew was lifted, and confirmed that security forces had resumed control and stability had been restored,” Al Arabiya TV channel quoted Abdul Mahdi’s media office as saying in a statement.

Pompeo, meanwhile, affirmed Washington’s support for the Iraqi government’s efforts to maintain security.

The statement said the government has put forward a package of reforms and will continue to provide more to meet the demands of the protesters.

At least eight people were killed in new clashes between Iraqi security forces and anti-government protesters on Sunday night in Baghdad, lifting the death toll to more than 100.

  1. PM Mahdi is not Arab, but a mercenary from other country. The Iraqi defense minister is a
    Swedish citizen. US has managed to set up a US puppet government in Baghdad which answers
    to US government and not the Iraqi people. The Arab regional countries bordering Iraq will not
    continue to tolerate mass killing of Iraqi Arab youth. US treachery has now been exposed.

  2. You mean PM Mahdi is still alive. What a shame. You’d think that by now Mahdi and Salih
    would have been assassinated. In any case, there are assassins going to Iraq to eliminate
    Mahdi and Salih, and liberate Iraq from US terrorist coalition. There is 10 million dollar reward
    for assassinating Mahdi and Salih.
