Office of the Spokesperson
For Immediate Release
Press Statement by Michael R. Pompeo, Secretary of State
April 13, 2020

 

The United States looks forward to the formation of a new Iraqi Government capable of confronting the COVID-19 pandemic, ameliorating the country’s current economic distress, and bringing arms under state control.  We welcome that Shia, Sunni, and Kurdish political leaders seem to have arrived at a consensus on government formation, and hope the new government puts Iraq’s interests first and meets the needs of the Iraqi people.  The Iraqi people demand genuine reform and trustworthy leaders.  These demands deserve to be addressed without violence or suppression.  We stand with the Iraqi people as they seek a sovereign, prosperous Iraq, free of corruption and terror.
