CAIRO – 19 December 2022: Egypt will participate in the second Baghdad Conference for Cooperation and Partnership on Tuesday in Jordan, according to the Jordanian news agency Petra.

Leaders and representatives of regional organizations and countries, including Saudi Arabia, UAE, Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Turkey, and Iran.

Also, Secretary-General of the League of Arab States Ahmed Aboul Gheit and Secretary-General of the Gulf Cooperation Council Nayef Al-Hajraf as well as representatives from the United Nations, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), and the European Union will participate in the conference.

The conference is held to confirm support to the Iraqi security and sovereignty in a way that contributes to the development process in the region.

Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi participated in the first edition of the conference held in the Iraqi capital of Baghdad in August 2021, where he expressed Egypt’s keenness to provide full support for the Iraqi people in all fields.

In a speech during the conference, Sisi called for putting an end to the foreign interference in the affairs of the countries in the region.

President Sisi also affirmed Egypt’s full support for Iraq, within the framework of the tripartite cooperation mechanism with Jordan.

Iraq currently enjoys some political stability as the new government of Prime Minister Mohamed Al-Sudani and new President Abdul Latif Rashid have taken the reigns.

However, the Arab country still faces multiple challenges, including security and economic challenges as well as challenges related to the reconstruction file.
