The Iraqi Parliament’s Foreign Relations Committee has met with the Japanese Charge d’affaires in Baghdad on Monday, to discuss developing bilateral relations between the two countries.

“The Parliament’s Foreign Relations Committee received the Japanese Charge d’affaires, Katsuhiko Takahashi, with whom it discussed the bilateral relations between both countries and means to develop them and to support the Japanese Loan for Iraq,” a Committee statement said.

The statement  had “reaffirmed the necessity to use the Japanese loan for Iraq in the field of investment and supporting the private sector.”
