Japan External Trade Organization (Jetro) has voiced hopes to increase its activities in Iraq amid the stable security situation in the country.


This statement came following a meeting with Iraqi PM Haider Abadi who is currently visiting Tokyo for talks to enhance trade cooperation. 


Abadi expressed the importance of the activities of Japanese firms operating in Iraq. 


Iraqi PM Haider al-Abadi arrived Wednesday in Japan for talks with his Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe and attend a conference focused on creating jobs in Iraq.

A statement from the Japanese embassy in Baghdad said the two leaders would hold talks on bilateral cooperation and attend the opening ceremony of a Japanese-organized conference on job creation and vocational training in Iraq.

The conference, to be held April 5 in Tokyo, aims to facilitate arms control in Iraq.

During the visit, Abadi is due to meet representatives of Japanese firms for further economic cooperation. 

Previously, Japan allocated $10 million in donation to contribute the reconstruction of Iraq.
