Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al- Maliki met and held talks with his visiting Polish counterpart Jaroslaw Kaczynski on Wednesday after Kaczynski's arrival for a surprising visit earlier in the day.
Maliki told reporters that he and Kaczynski tackled issues concerning bilateral interests, including military matters, oil, debt, loans and Polish companies that wish to invest in Iraq.
"We stress our stand to enhance relations with friendly countries which supported us, including Poland," Maliki said during a joint news conference with Kaczynski after the meeting.
For his part, Kaczynski said that "the future of our presence in Iraq depend on conditions of internal security in the country."
The Polish military presence in Iraq is due to end on Dec. 31, 2006, but the Polish government is studying an extension for a further period, media reports said.
The Polish troops, based in a relatively calm area south of Baghdad, are in charge of training Iraqi security forces.
