Salih urges boosting trade with Kuwait

Iraqi President Barham Salih called for following up on resolutions of the Kuwait-hosted international conference on rebuilding Iraq, praising Kuwait's aid for the relocated Iraqis and rebuilding war-damaged regions in the country, KUNA reported.

Salih, during a meeting with visiting Kuwaiti Minister of Commerce and Industry Khaled al-Roudhan on Wednesday, called for bolstering trade ties between the two countries.

The president also noted the necessity of broadening cooperation at this level for serving the two brotherly peoples' interests.

Iraq seeks "openness" with Arab, regional and foreign countries in the economic and industrial fields, he added.

For his part, Roudhan affirmed Kuwait's determination to promote ties with Iraq, as well as Kuwaiti companies' readiness to invest in the country and contribute to overhauling the infrastructure.
