PLEASE DON'T FORGET TO SET A REMINDER! THIS WILL BE LIVE STREAMED.
The United States and Iraq will hold the second round of their strategic dialogue this week to discuss bilateral relations as part of Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi’s first visit to Washington since assuming office in May. The visit comes as the new government deals with a host of economic, security, and political reform challenges—including governance and corruption issues, violence by armed groups, renewed ISIS threats, and the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Join USIP for a two-part discussion with Iraq’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Fuad Hussein and Minister of Migration and Displacement Evan Faeq Jabro. The discussion with Foreign Minister Hussein will cover U.S.-Iraq relations, the trajectory of the strategic dialogue, Iraq’s attempts to prevent the resurgence of ISIS, and how the international community can best support an independent and sovereign Iraq. The discussion with Migration Minister Jabro will cover the current reality and future of Iraqi displaced communities—including ethnic and religious minorities and those at al-Hol camp—and next steps for the new government to tackle ongoing security challenges and other barriers to safe return.
