US Special Presidential Envoy for Global Coalition to Counter ISIS Brett McGurk welcomed on Sunday Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim's visit to Iraq.
In a tweet, McGurk said "Important visit by Turkey Prime Minitser Binali Yildirim to Iraq today. Follows high level visits from Kuwait and Jordan. Regional ties enable stability".
Earlier, Yildirim arrived in Baghdad on top of a governmental delegation.
It was the first official visit by a well-placed Turkish official to Baghdad within two years.
The Turkish delegation discussed with Iraqi officials the presence of Turkish troops in Bashiqa Mountain north of Iraq, in addition to tackling pending economic and trade issues between the two countries.
