Iraqi Foreign Minister Arrives In Pakistan On Two-Day Visit

Foreign Minister of Iraq Dr Fuad Hussein arrived here on a two-day official visit on Wednesday.

On his arrival at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi greeted his Iraqi counterpart.

During the visit, the two foreign ministers will have an in-depth discussion about all aspects of bilateral relations. They will also discuss close cooperation in multilateral organisations, particularly the UN and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC).

The FMs will also hold consultations on issues affecting the Muslim Ummah as well as key regional and international issues.

The Iraqi Foreign Minister will also meet with Pakistan’s leadership and other dignitaries.

According to the Foreign Office, Pakistan and Iraq have close fraternal ties based on strong religious and cultural affinities.

“Pakistan accords high importance to these relations and is resolved to further deepen and broaden mutual cooperation in diverse fields. The relationship is reinforced by similarity of views on a range of regional and global issues,” the statement added.

The Iraqi Foreign Minister’s visit comes after a flurry of ministerial-level visits from both sides in recent months, indicating the significance both countries place on strengthening their bilateral relationship.

Foreign Minister Qureshi visited Iraq in May 2021. Further high-level exchanges are envisaged in the coming months.

“The visit of Foreign Minister Dr. Fuad Hussein is expected to add further momentum to the positive trajectory of brotherly relations between Pakistan and Iraq,” he FO said.
