Iraqi President Barham Salih has highlighted Iraq’s need for Washington assistance over the coming period as well as postponing the US troops withdrawal to help fighting remnants of terrorist groups.

Speaking to the Washington Post, Salih expressed hopes that US plays a positive role through investment, education and developmental assistance.

Moreover, Salih rejected US President Donald Trump’s remarks over the presence of US troops in Iraq to watch Iran. He noted that Iraq does not want conflicts with Iran, with which it has common borders that could be easily penetrated.
