Al Nasr Coalition: Pompeo did not visit Al-Abadi in Baghdad, and his allegations are unfounded

"Al Nasr Coalition" categorically denies what was attributed to former US Secretary of State "Mike Pompeo" of insulting Dr. Haider Al-Abadi, and considers it part of the US's internal partisan conflict. In the words of Carolina Governor Nikki Haley: Pompeo's memoirs are "lies and gossip".

Pompeo's allegations, which he conveyed on the lips of Dr. Haider al-Abadi, are pure fabrications.

Below is a history review that proves Pompeo’s claim false. The P5+1 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action with Iran was adopted on October 18, 2015. As a result, the UN sanctions on Iran were lifted on January 16, 2016.

On May 8, 2018, US President Donald Trump announced that the United States would withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal. The United States reinstated the sanctions in November 2018, and expanded them in 2019 and 2020 to include the Iranian financial sector, and what Pompeo touched on did not exist in the first place in 2017, as there were no sanctions in the financial aspect of supplying electricity from Iran, and the sanctions were not imposed again until the end of 2018, so how did Pompeo request that when the sanctions were not even there!! In addition, Pompeo did not visit Iraq in 2017, but rather visited Iraq at the beginning of 2019.

Accordingly, what Pompeo mentioned is contrary to the facts and the course of events, and it is sheer lies that are offensive to American officials before they are offensive to Iraqi officials. And his claim that Soleimani threatened the highest authority in Iraq is a justification for the assassination, which represents an assault on Iraqi sovereignty. We challenge any American institution to officially document these allegations, bearing in mind that all meetings are archived.

The years of governance 2014-2018 proved that they were was not subject to regional and international axes, and were able to employ contradictions in favor of Iraq by managing war and peace. And that whoever fears does not lead a country and win, and we have won with the people's determination and the wisdom of management and leadership in our battles against terrorism, division, bankruptcy and dependency.

At a time when we deny what was attributed to "Pompeo" against the Prime Minister of Iraq, Al-Abadi, we condemn in the strongest terms this national insult to Iraq, and we find no explanation for it.
