Mikhail Bogdanov, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister, Russia's special envoy to the Middle East and North Africa, arrived today in Baghdad for a two-day working visit.
The visit of Bogdanov to Iraq coincided with the announcement by US President Donald Trump, on Sunday, his intention to keep his troops in Iraq to monitor the activity of Iran.
On January 30, Iraqi Foreign Minister Mohammad Ali al-Hakim visited Russia after his appointment in October 2018.
Lavrov then told a joint press conference with his Iraqi counterpart that Moscow hoped that the US military presence in Iraq would meet its stated objectives of combating terrorism and helping the Iraqi government achieve stability, not to address the geopolitical tasks of the United States in this region. .
