On March 24, 2024, Iraqi President Abdullatif Jamal Rashid met with Alina L. Romanowski, the United States (U.S.) Ambassador to Iraq, at Al-Salam Palace in Baghdad.

President Rashid emphasised his commitment to fostering strong relationships that promote shared interests, safeguard national sovereignty, and improve collaboration across multiple domains.

In order to support overall development and economic advancement, he reaffirmed Iraq's commitment to carrying out the reform strategy, getting rid of corrupt practises, and building strong alliances. He also emphasised the importance of applying prior knowledge and experience to learn new skills and improve the state of the commercial, energy, agricultural, and environmental sectors.
President Rashid announced that the Iraqi Presidency has approved the release of detainees whose sentences have ended. Additionally, a committee has been formed, consisting of the Presidency, the Supreme Judicial Council, the Ministries of Justice and Interior, and the National Security Advisory.
