French President Emmanuel Macron warns that foreign interference and Islamic state are main challenges for Iraq. Macron pledged support for Iraqi sovereignty during a meeting with President Barham Salih.
As part of the Humanitarian Initiative week, which was announced by public Iraqi figures, the Iraqi President Barham Salih said that he will make a payment to the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) after being challenged by Iraqi comedian Ahmed al-Basheer.
Following the heavy rainfall last week, Iraqi Prime Minister Adil Abd al-Mahdi has asked the country's crisis unit and province governors to take the necessary measures to reduce the damage of the flooding. The Nineveh province was especially affected by the flooding, with dozens of houses being swept.
