WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Barack Obama and Iraqi Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi will meet in Washington on April 14, the White House said in a statement on Monday.

The two leaders will discuss a range of issues, "including continued U.S. support to Iraq to degrade and ultimately destroy" Islamic State in their White House meeting, the statement said.
