Halbusi’s visit, according to Salami, will boost cooperation between theArab Parliament and Iraq and mutual coordination to resolve outstanding crises.

“Iraq is one of the Arab League’s founders and is considered one of the keystones of joint Arab actions and decision-making,” Salami told the press.

“This invitation comes as the Arab Parliament seeks to support Iraq’s efforts in rebuilding liberated areas and achieving the aspirations of Iraqi people.”
