Tishwash: US Vice President arrives in Iraq

 Mike Pence, US Vice President Donald Trump, arrived in Iraq on Saturday to visit US soldiers, security sources said.

 World – America

The US media confirmed that Pence will inspect his country’s forces at the “base of Assad’s eye” in the western province of Anbar.

This is Pence’s first visit to Iraq, and the first by a US official at this level since President Donald Trump’s visit to al-Qaeda itself in late December 2018 for only hours, sparking controversy for not meeting any Iraqi official.   link

An informed source told “Sky News Arabia” that the meeting will also discuss the proposal of early elections, and the assertions of religious authority.
