Pompeo met Prime Minister Adil Abdul-Mahdi as well as Iraq's foreign minister, parliament speaker and President Barham Salih, who said his country still needs USA support in the fight against Islamic State militants.
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and US National Security Adviser John Bolton traveled to the Middle East this week to reassure America's Arab allies that the Trump administration is not walking away from the region and is continuing to step up pressure on Iran.
The vacancies, current and former officials say, hamper USA engagement in the region as Trump and his top deputies grapple with some of the toughest foreign-policy challenges Washington faces: extricating US troops from the war in Syria, countering Iran, dealing with a devastating civil war in Yemen, continuing counterterrorism operations, and patching up a long-simmering rift between Persian Gulf states. When he made his surprise announcement of the withdrawal three weeks ago, Trump said he wanted to complete it quickly.
"We learned that when America retreats, chaos often follows".

Most American forces were withdrawn from Iraq in 2011, after years of political squabbling following the USA invasion in 2003. And so are the policies that produced so much needless suffering. "We'll make sure we address the concerns that they have".

As a result, Republicans have long accused Obama of apologizing to the world for US actions overseas, a point that Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney emphasized during his 2012 attempt to unseat Obama. Pompeo met with Kurdish leaders in the capital of Iraq's semi-autonomous Kurdish region this week and pledged that the US would not abandon its Kurdish allies in Syria. "It undermined the concept of the nation-state, the building block of global stability", he said. "You could read this as obscuring a continued US retrenchment from Middle Eastern commitments", Alterman added.
The president originally said USA forces would be gone in 30 days.
"Remember, it was here, here in this city, that another American stood before you". He told you that radical Islamist terrorism does not stem from an ideology.
According to Salih's office, Pompeo said America is keen to "establish a distinguished relationship with Iraq", a country that is a strategic partner in the region.
