CAIRO – 1 April 2023: Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry will receive Mohammed al-Halbousi, Speaker of the Iraqi Parliament, on Saturday at the headquarters of the Egyptian Ministry.
He visited Egypt in September 2021 at an invitation of Speaker of the Egyptian House of Representatives Hanafi El Jebali. He also paid Egypt a visit in October 2018 after being elected as the Speaker of the Iraqi Parliament.
In July 2020, Halbousi met with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El Sisi, who pledged Cairo's overwhelming backing to the Iraqi people in all fields at the bilateral level or through tripartite cooperation involving Iraq, Egypt, and Jordan.
During the meeting, Sisi noted that Egypt's backing to Iraq comes within the framework of its policy based on entrenching the principle of uniting ranks to achieve stability, prosperity, and progress for Arab countries.
