US Secretary of State Antony Blinken has met Iraqi Prime Minister Mohammed al-Sudani during a surprise visit to Baghdad, al-Sudani’s office said on Sunday.
The office did not provide further details on the meeting.
Al-Sudani is expected to visit Tehran on Monday as part of a regional tour, which will also include several Gulf capitals, to discuss escalation in Gaza, according to the Iraqi News Agency.
Blinken, “son of a Jew, and the Zionist minister of war,” was not welcome in Iraq, Kataib Hezbollah spokesman Abu Ali al-Askari said in a statement.
Al-Askari also said the militia would work to counter US interests in Iraq and prevent US citizens from travelling to the country if the aggression on Gaza continues.
The withdrawal of foreign troops from Iraq is “inevitable,” he said.
