SULAIMANI — Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) politburo member Hoshiyar Zebari criticized Iraq’s top leaders on Thursday (December 27) for not meeting with US President Donald Trump, describing it as a huge shock.

“The refusal of the Iraqi president, prime minister, and parliamentary speaker to meet with the US president was much more shocking than Trump’s surprise visit to Iraq to visit with American soldiers,” he wrote on his official Facebook page.

According to protocol, they should have been hand to welcome the president in order to protect Iraq’s image and dignity.

“The previous cabinet used to receive senior US officials in honor of the esteem and sovereignty of Iraqi soil and status,” he added.

Hoshyar Zebari is a former Iraqi foreign minister and finance minister. He was removed from his position as finance minister by parliament for corruption.
