Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi and his accompanying delegation will not leave to the US on Saturday, the prime minister media office said.

In statements, head of the media office Haidar Hamada did not mention any details concerning the expected visit.

Earlier, well-informed sources said that Abadi will meet US President Donald Trump in Washington this week.

The White House announced last week that the newly-elected US president would receive Abadi in March without specifying a certain date.

Observers say both sides would discuss the achievements of the ongoing military operation to liberate Mosul from ISIS terrorists, as well as the US support for Iraq in its war against terrorism. http://www.thebaghdadpost.com/en/story/8300/Abadi-will-not-travel-to-US-Saturday-PM-media-office
