Mr Al Abadi's office, however, denied that was the objective of the meeting, saying the invitation was first extended when French foreign minister Jean-Yves Le Drian and defence minister Florence Parly visited Baghdad on August 26, and President Macron had made no mention of "the need to recognise the rights of the Kurds or stopping an escalation by Baghdad".
