President Barham Salih arrived in Doha on Thursday, heading a government delegation on an official visit at an invitation of Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani the Emir of Qatar.

The Emir received Salih, who has paid a visit last week to Ankara to meet with his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyib Erdogan.

Iraqi presidential office issued a statement saying that Salih will hold talks and meetings with senior Qatari officials.

The visit is aimed at “boosting fraternal relations between the two brotherly countries and upgrading them at all levels, as well as discussing the developments of the political situation on both Arab and international arenas” according to the statement.

During the meeting, Tamim renewed his country’s support to Iraq on political and security levels, asserting his serious will to develop the Qatari-Iraqi relations and boosting Iraq’s stability and prosperity.

On the other hand, Salih called on his Qatari counterpart to establish solid Arab and regional relations and dialogue, in a way that serves the development of Arab countries.
