US Vice President Joe Biden has spoken with Iraq’s Prime Minister-designate Haider al-Abadi and discussed government formation among other issues, the White House said.
During a telephone call, Biden emphasised that continuing progress, under Dr Abadi’s leadership, towards forming a new
government has been critical to rallying international support for Iraq in its fight against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL).
The Prime Minister-designate reviewed with the Vice President his ongoing efforts to form, as rapidly as possible, a government prepared to address the needs of all of Iraq’s communities once it takes office, the White House said.
