The two leaders met in Davos, Switzerland, their first meeting since the US killed a top Iranian general in Baghdad, sparking an Iraqi parliament call for expulsion of US troops.

The statement said the two leaders agreed on the importance of continuing the US-Iraq economic and security partnership, including the fight against the Islamic State group. It added that President Trump reaffirmed the US’ unwavering commitment to a sovereign, stable, and prosperous Iraq.
