Spokesman of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is surprised by the statement issued by US State Department Spokesman Heather Naort, in where he described Deputy Chairman of popular mobilization Mr. Abu Mahdi Al-Muhandis  as a terrorist.


"We confirm that the Popular mobilization body is an inseparable part of the Iraqi forces that are under the orders of the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces and that they fought bravely beside the other forces. Al-Muhandis is the Vice President of this fighting body and legally approved by the parliament. Against terrorism


While we reject these statements, we recall the support of the United States for the battle in which all the Iraqi people fought, including the men of popular mobilization, and we call upon the US State Department to review these contradictory statements.
