U.S. Embassy Congratulates Iraqis on Designation of New Prime Minister

We congratulate Dr. Adil Abd al-Mahdi on his selection as Prime Minister designate. The U.S. has worked with Dr. Abd al-Madhi in his previous role in government and we look forward to further strengthening the relations between Iraq and the United States during his tenure. We support the Iraqi people’s calls for reform and effective governance and look forward to working closely with him to help deliver stability, security, and prosperity for all Iraqis. We encourage Iraq’s elected leaders to continue forming a strong, independent, and effective new government according to the constitutional timeline.
