Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed said “the UAE remains committed to supporting stability and progress for Iraq and its people” as he received Iraq’s Prime Minister, Mustafa Al Kadhimi, on Sunday.
Bin Zayed hosted an official reception ceremony for Al Kadhimi at Qasr Al Watan, which included a 21-gun salute, honour guard and the national anthems of the UAE and Iraq.
Sheikh Mohamed said it was “a pleasure to welcome our brother Mustafa Al Kadhimi … to the UAE.”
The officials discussed regional and global developments, as well as ways to strengthen their “fraternal relations”.
Al Kadhimi’s office said the two leaders discussed ways to strengthen co-operation in the energy, investment, culture, trade and transport sectors.
“They also discussed ways to advance relations between Iraq and the UAE that serves the public’s interest,” it said.
