The Iraqi Prime Minister's Office said in a statement that "Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi and his Egyptian counterpart Mustafa Madbouly chaired on Saturday the discussions of the Iraqi and Egyptian government delegations on the work of the joint Iraqi-Egyptian High Committee."
According to the statement, "Al-Kazemi expressed his happiness for Baghdad to host the work of the joint Iraqi-Egyptian Higher Committee, where a number of agreements will be signed in the fields of transport, health, energy and electricity, in addition to cooperation in the scientific, technical and cultural fields."
He stressed "the importance of benefiting from the Egyptian experience in the housing and construction sector," calling on "Egyptian companies to participate in the reconstruction of the liberated areas."
The joint Iraqi-Egyptian Higher Committee started its preparatory work in the capital, Baghdad last Wednesday, October 28, with the participation of a number of ministers from the two countries in the sectors that are under discussion and cooperation.
