U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo made an unexpected stop in Iraq during his Middle East tour.
According to the State Department, they discussed efforts to defeat ISIS in the region and U.S. support for the new Iraqi government.
Pompeo's Middle East trip is expected to focus on a few themes: the U.S.'s commitment to the region and keeping the pressure on Iran, which the Trump administration says was violating the terms of its 2015 nuclear deal.
So far, Pompeo's also stopped in Jordan. He's expected in Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and five other countries in the next week.
