Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi has called for a full investigation into the 2003 US-led invasion of his country that was assessed as unjust by the UK's Iraq War inquiry last year.

Reports on Wednesday quoted Abadi as saying at a press conference on Tuesday that he would like to see a "thorough investigation" of America's decision-making that led to its troops "occupying" Iraq.

The intervention caused instability and persistent “chaos” in the Arab country, he said, expressing hope that Iraq would be compensated for all the wrongs of Washington.

The Iraqi premier further stressed that the war on Iraq opened the doors for "all terrorist groups from all over the world to enter" the country, a development Iraqis "paid dearly" for.
“The US invasion of Iraq removed [former Iraqi dictator] Saddam [Hussein]'s regime, but on the other hand it led to… tragedies," he pointed out.

Earlier this week, US President-elect Donald Trump said the war on Iraq was “possibly the worst decision” ever made in American history.
