Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi announced on Tuesday that he will head to New York next week to attend meetings of UN General Assembly. 

In his weekly press conference, al-Abadi said that during the meetings of the UN General Assembly, which will last for three days, he aspires to meet as many leaders as possible to discuss the means to reconstruct Iraq.  

Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) MP Masrour Barzani, son of region’s President Masoud Barzani, will head to Washington to convince the US administration to support Kurdistan Region’s independence referendum slated for September 25th. 

In July, it was reported that Mosul’s basic infrastructure will cost more than $1 billion to repair after the US-backed Iraqi offensive to retake the city from ISIS.
