Iraq stresses the strength of its relationship with the European Union

UNITED STATES (VOP TODAY NEWS) — Iraqi Foreign Ministry spokesman Ahmad al-Sahaf said the EU and Iraq are working together to achieve the goals set by the reconstruction conference held in Kuwait in February 2018.

Al-Sahaf said Saturday that the two sides are determined to commit themselves to achieving peace and stability in the Middle East, stressing their strong friendship, which has deepened in recent years through joint cooperation to defeat the “terrorist”.

He stressed that the EU’s contribution of 1.2 billion euros in humanitarian assistance, stability, development and security cooperation since 2014 is the best proof of its long-term commitment to the strategic partnership with Iraq.

Earlier, EU High Commissioner for Security and Foreign Policy Federica Mujerini arrived in Baghdad for an official visit.

The RT correspondent, quoting Iraqi sources, said that “Mugherini will discuss with government officials Iraq’s efforts in the file of negotiations on the Iranian nuclear agreement,” without giving further details.
