Shankali added that “Trump has a visit in mid-May to Saudi Arabia and is expected to visit Iraq during this visit, which is not excluded,” but said, “But the announcement of the date of such a visit does not announce the sensitivity of the situation and the security situation as the president of the greatest country in the world.”
