India, Iraq Agree on Cooperation for Strategic PartnershipIndia and Iraq agreed November 29 on a framework for cooperation for a long-term strategic partnership as Baghdad urged New Delhi to look beyond the United Nations (UN) sanctions and help in rebuilding its economy.
Visiting Iraqi Vice President Taha Yassin Ramadhan, who held wide-ranging discussions with Indian leaders, said a new dimension was being given to bilateral ties with special focus on bolstering economic cooperation.
Ramadhan, who is on a five-day official visit, the first high- level visit from Iraq to India in the last 25 years, said: "we found real understanding and appreciation here of the position of Iraq."
Describing his visit as a "turning point" in Indo-Iraq relations, Ramadhan told reporters there were now immense prospects for cooperation and expansion of bilateral ties in diversified fields. "Now, we are moving ahead," he said.
