A source for “Al-Sabah”: Baghdad will host the tripartite summit tomorrow Saturday 26 June 2021 205 Cairo: Esraa Khalifa It is expected that the capital, Baghdad, will host tomorrow, Sunday, the tripartite summit between Iraq, Egypt and Jordan, after it was postponed twice due to emergency circumstances. An official diplomatic source told "Al-Sabah" correspondent in Cairo: "Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi will go to Baghdad to hold the tripartite summit that includes Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi and King Abdullah II of Jordan." And the source indicated that "the summit comes to activate all the agreements of the three countries that were signed during the last period," noting that "it is being held in Baghdad as a continuation of the previous two summits in Egypt and Jordan." In this context, "Al-Sabah" learned that the Iraqi ambassador in Cairo and the permanent representative to the League of Arab States, Ahmed Nayef Al-Dulaimi, arrived in Baghdad to participate in receiving the official Egyptian and Jordanian delegations. And political sources had reported earlier that the tripartite summit between the leaders of Iraq, Egypt and Jordan would be held in Baghdad early this week, after the three countries had agreed on the date. Experts and analysts expect that the "New Levant" joint project between Egypt, Jordan and Iraq will top the tripartite summit, including cooperation in economic and investment fields between the three countries, in addition to being a candidate to include other Arab countries. In turn, Representative Yonadam Kanna considered Iraq's hosting of the tripartite summit, which includes it, Jordan and Egypt, as new Arab support for him. He said in a press interview: "The tripartite summit in Baghdad is a new emphasis on and promotion of common interests, and a continuation of the previous two summits in Amman and Cairo." Kanna added, "Although the agenda has not been announced yet, but in my estimation, that what was previously proposed will be repeated and emphasized in terms of common interests, trade exchange, border security, electrical connection, and others." Regarding the possibility of inviting Syria to join the three countries, he said: "The matter is It's early due to international pressure." And Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi said during his visit to Washington: that he intends to enter into a strategic project called "The New Levant", as he made it clear that it is an economic project on the European model that brings Baghdad to Cairo, and Amman joined it later. The project is not limited to these three countries, but rather a candidate for the inclusion of other Arab countries, and the "new Levant", according to strategic experts, depends on the enormous oil wealth owned by Iraq, in exchange for the huge human mass of Egypt, and Jordan joins them due to its geographical location that links Iraq with Egypt.
