President Barham Salih plans to visit Qatar next Thursday,
according to a source in the presidency.
Salih will hold important meetings with Qatar’s Emir Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani and senior officials in the country, the source said in a statement.
He pointed out that the visit falls within the president’s efforts to activate Iraq's relations regionally and internationally.
Observers have refused Salih’s visit to Qatar, considering it disgraceful to include the emirate in his schedule of foreign meetings, as it puts Iraq in the lap of the axis of evil.
