President Donald Trump plans to welcome Iraq Prime Minster Haider al-Abadi (HY'-dahr ahl ah-BAH'-dee) to the White House later this month.

The White House says Trump will meet with al-Abadi in Washington during the week of March 20.

The meeting comes after the Trump administration dropped Iraq from a revised temporary travel ban that applies to citizens of certain Muslim majority countries who apply for new visas.

The White House said Iraq was no longer covered by the ban because the country provided additional security cooperation with the U.S.
