Egypt’s Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry headed to Baghdad on Sunday to attend the tripartite meeting with his Jordanian, and Iraqi counterparts, according to ministry’s spokesperson Ahmed Hafez.
The meeting will discuss ways to boost trilateral cooperation between the parties across different fields, and exchange views concerning the developments of Arab, regional and international issues of common interest, Hafez said in a statement.
The Iraqi embassy in Jordan said in a statement that the meeting will focus on counter-terrorism, investment and supporting the reconstruction efforts in Iraq.
