Iraqi President Barham Salih headed a governmental delegation on Thursday in an official visit to the Turkish capital Ankara.
In a statement, the presidential media office said, “Barham Salih headed to Turkey in an official visit on top of a governmental delegation.”
The visit, according to the statement, “comes within a series of visits previously paid to several Arab and regional countries as part of Iraq’s new foreign policy.”
Salih is set to meet with his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan to discuss urgent issues including the latest developments in Syria, as well as the Iraqi-Turkish bilateral relations, sources previously told The Baghdad Post.
Iraq has intensified its strikes along their borders with Syria to eliminate the remaining ISIS threat since US President Donald Trump decided to withdraw his forces from Syria.
