Iraqi caretaker Prime Minister Adil Abdul-Mahdi arrived in Erbil on Saturday, where he was received at the airport by Kurdistan Region President Nechirvan Barzani.
Footage shows Barzani receiving Abdul-Mahdi at the airport, before the two leaders walk together towards the terminal building.
The two leaders reportedly discussed anti-government protests, foreign troop presence in Iraq and wider... Еще regional tensions. Abdul-Mahdi reportedly assured he did not seek a hostile relationship with the United States.
The meeting comes eight days after a US strike near Baghdad airport that killed Iran Quds Force General Qassem Soleimani, before Iran carried out retaliatory rocket attacks against US forces stationed in Iraq.
