SULAIMANI — Iraq will join China’s “Belt and Road” global infrastructure development project, Prime Minister Adil Abdul Mahdi said on Monday (September 23) during a visit to the Chinese capital Beijing.

“Iraq has gone through war and civil strife and is grateful to China for its valuable support,” said Abdul Mahdi, in comments broadcast on Chinese state media outlet CCTV and reported by AFP.

“Iraq is willing to work together in the ‘One Belt, One Road’ framework,” he added.

“China would like, from a new starting point together with Iraq, to push forward the China-Iraq strategic partnership,” said Chinese President Xi Jinping.

In addition, eight agreements and memorandums of understanding (MOUs) were signed covering covered financial, commercial, security, reconstruction, communications, culture, education, security, and foreign affairs, the prime minister’s media office said in a press release.

The task of rebuilding Iraq’s infrastructure following the war against Islamic State is immense. As a result, the Iraqi government has pursued a foreign policy of neutrality and friendship with other states, including some who are engaged in serious rivalry and competition, such as the US and Iran.

Washington and others have criticized the ambition of the Belt and Road, saying it is a way for China to expand its political and influence over countries.

Even without the Belt and Road, Iraq and China have strong trade ties with a trade volume of $30 billion last year. Iraq is one of China's top energy suppliers.

The Iraqi Prime Minister invited his counterpart Premier Li Keqiang visit to Baghdad to further strengthen relations between the two countries.

The Iraqi delegation arrived in China on September 19.

A+AA-

ERBIL (Kurdistan 24) – An Iraqi delegation headed by Prime Minister Adil Abdul Mahdi signed eight Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on Monday with China to develop economic and trade ties between the two countries.   

The delegation consisted of 55 high-ranking individuals, including ministers, officials, and provincial governors. During the visit, the delegates signed eight MoU’s with China’s trade chamber to support Iraq's economic infrastructure.

“This visit represents a new start for Iraq in areas of economy and security,” Abdul Mahdi said in a statement on Monday.

“We will diversify Iraq’s economy, and we will fund the major projects through our revenue from oil exported to china which is about one million barrels of oil per day (bpd).”

Abul Mahdi also mentioned that his government would further develop ties related to utilities, essential services, and rebuild the areas demolished during the war against the so-called Islamic State.

On his side, Chinese President Xi Jinping said his country “is very interested with its relations with Iraq,” adding they consider Iraq “a main and strategic partner in the Middle East.”

"We will support efforts to preserve the sovereignty of Iraq, and we appreciate Iraq’s role in supporting China in different areas,” Jinping added. “We will continue our cooperation, and we appreciate Iraq’s role in standing against terror.”

Saleh Abdullah al-Jabouri, Iraq’s Minister of Industry and Minerals, announced on Monday during the Iraq-Chinese Economic Cooperation Forum that one of the MoU’s would establish industrial cities in five Iraqi provinces to manufacture high-quality Chinese materials.

Jabouri also noted that there are over 200 projects and investment opportunities for the companies who work with Iraq’s Ministry of Industry and Minerals.

The cooperation between the two countries will also include aeronautics with satellites, promote education and cultural collaboration like the establishment of a Chinese library at the University of Baghdad.
