TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) – Turkey’s foreign minister is in Iraq to discuss trade, border security, and water resources.
The two-day visit beginning Sunday will include stops in Iraq’s semi-autonomous Kurdish region and Basra, the country’s main oil hub.
Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu met with his Iraqi counterpart, Mohamed Alhakim, in Baghdad Sunday, Reuters reported.
He said Turkey would send a special representative to Iraq to discuss water resources after an exceptionally wet winter filled reservoirs and caused flooding in both countries.
Alhakim said Iraq would facilitate trade with Turkey and called on Turkish firms to invest in Iraq.
