The discussions at the meeting focused on the ways and means of enhancing the relationship with the Arab States as well as broadening constructive cooperation across all the fields which would guarantee the interests of all.
The President underscored that a strong and capable Iraq having sovereignty is the national project that would safeguard Iraq and its security as well as lasting societal peace, and indicated that Iraq's stability is a main pillar of regional stability.
Moreover, he stressed that Iraq has its power and its influence over its regional and international environment.
