Colin Allred (D-TX32) introduced a resolution affirming the nature and importance of the United States-Iraq bilateral relationship, including security and economic components of the relationship, citing partnership against ISIS and Iran in particular as evidence of the relationship’s importance. The resolution calls on the U.S. to support Iraqi security and sovereignty while continuing to provide humanitarian programs like supporting internally displaced Iraqis and supplying medical aid to combat COVID-19.
