Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi attended a summit today in Egypt’s New Alamein city on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea, where Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi is hosting the leaders of Iraq, Jordan, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain.
Leaders at the two-day summit will discuss mutual relations, economic cooperation and partnership, and regional security and challenges.
“The summit will discuss various issues of interest to the region, including regional security, joint cooperation, consultation on common issues and industrial integration,” the prime minister’s media office said in a statement. “The leaders will also discuss energy, investment and climate change.”
Iraq has continued to develop its relationship with Arab countries during the Kadhimi government in the hope of building regional cooperation and partnership, focusing on economy and security.
Baghdad hosted a tripartite summit with the participation of Jordanian King Abdullah and Sisi in June 2021.
Baghdad also organized a broader conference in August 2021 with the participation of Jordan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Iran, Qatar and Turkey, aiming to build regional cooperation and partnership.
Iraq attended the Jeddah conference for security and development last July with the participation of US President Joe Biden.
