"The sons of the National Reform Movement throughout Iraq condemn the strange visit of the president of the United States to liberated Anbar province, his meeting with soldiers and American commanders at the Iraqi base of Ain al-Asad, a strange visit that does not in fact resemble the rest of the official visits To our beloved country, which is defending everyone for his security, sovereignty and democratic project, especially as the visit coincided with the withdrawal of US forces from Arab Syria recently. "
"While we appreciate the military and security efforts of all the friendly countries that supported Iraq in its war against the gangs of extremism and brutality, we call for the need for Iraq to open up a joint development project between us and these countries to achieve a bright and progressive picture of a promising future. The importance of respecting customs, covenants and international treaties between Iraq and any other country. "
"We have seen the statement of the Information Office of the Prime Minister, Adel Abdul Mahdi, who pointed to the existence of coordination between the Iraqi government and the US, and then a divergence of views prompted the official meeting to turn into a telephone call, and this justification in fact does not fit with Iraq's victorious aspirations, nor with the sons of Iraq who have provided blood, and martyrs; so we condemn such visits with poor coordination; Iraq is not a minor to achieve this meeting between the two governments, and the US side is a little experience of such visits, As long as it is necessary.
