The Iraqi cabinet has approved a draft agreement on economic, trade and technical cooperation with the Czech Republic, a government spokesperson said on Thursday.
“The minister of trade will be authorized to negotiate and sign the agreement,” Ali al-Dabbagh said in a statement received by Aswat al-Iraq, in reference to the resolutions made during the 39th session of the Iraqi cabinet on October 7.“The agreement aims at expanding and developing trade, economic and technical exchange between the two countries in accordance with the existing laws in both countries,” Dabbagh noted.
The cabinet has also decided to set up a committee, headed by the minister of immigration and displaced persons, to resume talks on the return of displaced Iraqis, Dabbagh noted.
The committee, which will include representatives of the ministries of finance, higher education, and trade, will submit its recommendations to the cabinet in less than two weeks.
