Al-Kazemi strengthens Iraq's role in a regional summit that the Middle East has not seen for decades
Baghdad / Obelisk: Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kadhimi begins a new important step, confirming his project aimed at making Iraq an important regional hub, seeking to find the greatest consensus among the countries of the region, and to bring understanding and peace, instead of conflict and fighting.
Iraq launched invitations to neighboring countries to attend the summit, which aims to reduce tension in the region and focus efforts to combat terrorist groups.
On Monday, August 9, 2021, the King of Saudi Arabia, Salman bin Abdulaziz, received the invitation of Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi to attend the leaders of the countries neighboring Iraq.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan also received the invitation.
In the event that the broad title of the summit matches reality, the President of the Syrian regime, Bashar al-Assad, will be invited to attend the summit, given that Syria is one of Iraq's neighbors.
It is expected from the summit that Baghdad will strengthen its economic relations through it and enhance investment opportunities.
Assuming that the leaders of Turkey, Iran, Syria, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait attend the summit, it will be a historic achievement for the Al-Kazemi government in a regional summit that the region has missed for decades.
