Prime Minister Adil Abdul-Mahdi arrived in Paris on Friday as he is scheduled to meet with French President Emmanuel Macron.

This marks Abdul-Mahdi’s official visit to France since he has taken office as the prime minister of Iraq.

During an official ceremony, Macron received Abdul-Mahdi at Elysee Palace. They were set to hold a joint press conference later.

Abdul-Mahdi is touring Europe to discuss several issues, including international support for rehabilitating post-ISIS Iraq and the fate of foreign members of ISIS currently in Iraq’s detention.
