CAIRO (Reuters) - Iraq’s Kurdistan region’s prime minister, Masrour Barzani, said in a post on Twitter on Wednesday that he had a call with U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo where they discussed the current developments in Iraq.
Barzani also said that he suggested ways of de-escalation and containing the situation.
The phone call comes after Iran launched a missile attack on Iraq’s Ain Al-Asad air base that hosts U.S. Forces.
