U.S. President Barack Obama said the nomination of Haider al-Abadi as Iraq's prime minister-designate was a "promising step forward". Speaking on August 11 in Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts, Obama acknowledged that the new Iraqi leadership had a difficult task of regaining the confidence of its citizens by "governing inclusively."
