– The Parliamentary Relations and Foreign Affairs Committee stressed the importance of the results and outcomes of the conference of Iraq’s neighbors, “Baghdad International Summit”, scheduled to be held at the end of this month, with international and regional participation.
Member of the committee, Deputy Amer Al-Fayez, said, in a statement to the National Iraqi News Agency (NINA), that “the conference of Iraq’s neighbors or the Baghdad International Summit is an integral part of the process of regional communication with neighboring countries and the region.”
He explained that “Iraq is trying to gather international and regional parties at one round table, which adopts the discussion of most of the political, security and economic files of common interest to these countries.”
He added, “Security, combating terrorism and corruption, services, construction and water, are also Iraqi files with direct international and regional contact, so they need a balanced strategy with all parties to ensure resolving differences with neighboring countries,” noting that “the outcomes of the summit of Iraq’s neighbors may lead to signing the so-called “Baghdad Declaration or Baghdad Treaty or Agreement” within an international protocol framework that all regional parties will be concerned with.
Government preparations continue to hold the Baghdad International Summit at the end of this August, with the participation of more than 13 Arab and foreign countries, including the neighboring countries of Iraq, Egypt, Qatar and the UAE, in addition to the United States of America, Britain and France.
