Iraqi leader says Trump 'more engaged' in terror fight
"I think they're prepared to do more to fight terrorism and be more engaged", Abadi told a forum in Washington hours after his meeting with Trump, adding he had been told US "support will not only continue but will accelerate".
The two leaders agreed to promote a "broad-based political and economic partnership based in the Strategic Framework Agreement (SFA)", the bilateral agreement which has been the cornerstone of U.S. support of Iraq since 2008.
Abadi's remarks followed his first face-to-face meeting at the White House with Trump, who took office on January 20 pledging a new strategy to defeat the hardline militant group that seized large swaths of Iraq and Syria in 2014.
Trump, who has been a staunch opponent of the global agreement negotiated by the USA under President Barack Obama, took the opportunity to criticize it amid meeting Abadi in the White House on Monday. The president was also critical of his predecessor, saying the USA military should not have withdrawn from Iraq in 2011, and critiquing the Iranian nuclear deal.
Tackling what Trump refers to "radical Islamic terrorism", was one of his campaign promises as the GOP nominee for 2016 presidential election.
US President Donald Trump has questioned the decision of his predecessors to first send the American troops to Iraq and then withdraw them, while assuring support to the war torn country to maintain stability.
He said he had been told U.S. "support will not only continue but will accelerate".
Trump also faced pressure to remove Iraq from the order from some American national security officials, who argued the restriction burdened a key anti-ISIS partner. I know there is a plan. We have our own plan.
"As the United States and Iraq stand together against terrorism in all its forms, we will not tolerate efforts by any country to destabilise Iraq or undermine Iraq's democratic institutions", the joint statement said.
In the two leaders' meeting, Trump criticized his predecessor's policies in the region.
Asked whether he had seen the Trump administration's plan to wipe out Islamic State, Abadi said: "I haven't seen a full plan".
He praised the Iraqi military's advances in Mosul but added further criticism of both the Bush invasion of Iraq and Obama's troop drawdown. "Maybe someday we'll be able to figure it out". "Our main thrust is we have get rid of ISIS, it's happening - it's happening right now".
"Perhaps we shouldn't have gone in (to Iraq) and... certainly we should never, ever have left and the vacuum was created and we discussed what happened", he said.
