At a meeting on Friday between US officials and those in the US-backed coalition, during this meeting, US officials distanced themselves from the Iraqi officials after it came to light that several local Iraqi officials had begun to back the normalization of Israel. The US official Col. Marotto sent out a statement saying that the US had no idea about the local Iraqi officials normalizing Israel, but the US would still support Iraq’s government and that the US would still back the coalition.  The White House has set out a plan that they would like to try and strengthen and increase the Abraham Accords. Following Friday’s meeting, the Iraqi citizens began to ask the Iraqi government to end the current war going on with Israel and for Iraq to join the Abraham Accords.
