BAGHDAD: British Defense Minister Michael Fallon arrived in Baghdad on Thursday to discuss bilateral security cooperation with Iraqi officials.

“While in Baghdad, Fallon is slated to meet several officials, including Irfan al-Hayali, his Iraqi counterpart, and Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi,” a Foreign Ministry source told Anadolu Agency.

“Talks will likely revolve around British military and security support for Iraq in the post-Daesh era,” the same source said, speaking anonymously due to restrictions on talking to media.
