Baku, 29 April 2016 – Newtimes.az

U.S. Vice President Joe Biden is in Iraq for talks with Iraqi leaders "focused on encouraging Iraqi national unity and continued momentum" in the fight against Islamic State, VOA reports.

"The Vice President will also be discussing steps the international community can take to promote Iraq's economic stability and further regional cooperation," a statement from Biden's office said.

Biden is the highest-ranking U.S. official to visit Iraq since his previous trip to the country in 2011. He met with Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi shortly after his arrival.

"The vice president has been the point person on Iraq for the administration since the beginning," said an unnamed U.S. official traveling on Biden's plane.
