Spokesman of the Prime Minister's Office Saad al-Haadithi said on Sunday that Abadi's itinerary in Washington include meetings with the American president, top administration officials, congressmen as well as representatives of a number of American companies.

Abadi's talks in Washington will cover joint efforts as part of the war on terrorism, close cooperation at the security and military levels as well as means of enhancing the two countries' relations, according to the spokesman.

He made it clear that Abadi will also discuss the file of the displaced people, the government plans to achieve stability in the liberated areas, their reconstruction projects along with means of garnering up support for Iraq from the US and the international community to help Iraq overcome its financial crisis and carry out an all-out reform program.

The premier's office spokesman also asserted that Abadi's visit to Washington would highlight the importance of Iraq in the region especially as Baghdad is close to achieve victory over terrorism and its efforts to regain confidence of the international community over its future plans.
