Iraqi PM Slams Tillerson’s Comments against Popular Forces

Iraqi PM Slams Tillerson’s Comments against Popular Forces
Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi dismissed US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s remarks against Iraqi Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) as an example of interference in the internal affairs of the Arab country.

“No party has the right to interfere in Iraqi matters…,” Abadi’s media office said in a statement on Monday, according to Lebanon’s Arabic-language Al Mayadeen TV network.

The forces of the PMU, also known as Hashd al-Shaabi, are Iraqi citizens and have sacrificed themselves to defend their country, the statement read.

Tillerson said on Sunday it was time for Iranian-backed militias and their Iranian advisers who helped Iraq defeat Daesh (ISIS or ISIL) to “go home”, after a rare joint meeting with the leaders of Iraq and Saudi Arabia.
