Ambassadors of the UK, France and Germany hailed the development of relations with Iraq, highlighting the efforts of their countries to increase bilateral cooperation.

During a meeting with Iraqi President Barham Salih, the ambassadors also praised the balanced foreign policy of Iraq and the role it plays among Arab countries, a statement by Salih's office read.

President Salih stressed the need to establish a stable regional system that distances Iraq and the peoples of the region from conflicts.

Salih noted that Iraq's policy is based on staying away from the policy of alignment and adopts intensifying efforts through diplomatic channels to reach political solutions that promote peace and stability in the region, according to the statement.

The president underscored Iraq's keenness to strengthen relations with European countries and develop cooperation and coordination to serve the common interests.

He also praised the European Union's efforts in supporting Iraq in various fields, especially concerning returning displaced Iraqis to their original areas.
