May visits Iraq

British Prime Minister Theresa May met with her Iraqi counterpart Haider al-Abadi in Baghdad on Wednesday, Reuters reported, citing an Iraqi government spokesman. This is her first visit to Iraq since coming to power last year. The British government said in September that there were around 600 British soldiers on the ground in Iraq. “We will continue to support Iraq in various fields,” May said, according to Iraqi state television. Abadi said that “Iraqi-British relations have witnessed an improvement, especially in the field of counter terrorism,” according to the report.
