Biden checks his watch as Iraqi Prime Minister speaks (VIDEO) |  The Gateway expert

Joe Biden held a bilateral meeting with Prime Minister Mohammed Shyaa Al-Sudani of the Republic of Iraq on Monday.

Biden’s meeting with the Iraqi prime minister comes a few days after Iran attacked Israel with drone and missile strikes.

“Our partnership is critical to our countries, the Middle East and the world,” Biden said.

Biden took a victory lap after Iran attacked Israel.

“In the 36 hours since, we coordinated a diplomatic response to prevent escalation,” Biden said, slurring his words. “Strength and wisdom must be different sides of the same coin.”

He continued to say unclearly: “As you know, Iran launched an unprecedented airstrike on Israel and we have made an unprecedented military effort to defend Israel.”
