According to political analyst Qassem Balshan, there should be a boost in the trade between Turkey and Iraq, particularly in the realm of development, and an increase in the amount of water allocated to Iraq following the upcoming visit of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to Iraq.
Balshan informed Al-Maalouma that Erdogan’s upcoming visit to Iraq will cover various topics, with a focus on economic matters. It is anticipated that after the visit, there will be an increase in water releases from the Tigris and Euphrates rivers.
In his statement, he emphasized that Turkey prioritizes its economic interests in Iraq before seeking support from any political figure in the country. Iraq is currently an attractive environment for global economies, and Turkey recognizes this fact. As attention is directed towards the path of development, Ankara sees the potential for economic growth in Iraq.
He stated that the Turkish leader recognizes the significance of his nation’s progress and is striving to enhance its economic standing with Iraq without delving into political matters or providing support to specific parties.
