FM Hakim meets Egyptian, Jordanian counterparts in Baghdad


The Foreign Ministers of Egypt, Jordan and Iraq would hold a meeting on Sunday in Iraq, said the Iraqi Ministry of Foreign Affairs in a statement on Saturday. 

The meeting will shed light on the means of the economic cooperation among the three countries, besides ways of supporting Iraqi stability and achieving its development, the statement added. 

“They (the ministers) will also discuss counter-terrorism issues, investment through a series of agreements and MoUs (Memoranda of Understanding) that include economic coordination, and support Iraq in reconstructing areas that were liberated from the terrorist group ISIS," the statement read. 

The meeting will tackle the outcomes of the tripartite summit held in Cairo between Egyptian President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi, Jordanian King Abdullah II, and Iraqi Prime Minister Adil Abd al-Mahdi in March, the statement added. 

The Foreign Ministers of the three countries previously met in Amman on May 9, where they discussed the mechanism of enhancing economic integration and cooperation in joint industrial zones.
