Russia to Strengthen Ties with Iraq

Russian President Dmitry Medvedev (pictured) announced on Thursday that Russia would continue helping Iraq to become a democratic, independent country and to preserve its territorial integrity, something that meets the Iraqi people’s interests and is in line with regional stability and security.

In a letter delivered to Iraqi Prime Minister, he also signaled Russia's readiness to deepen bilateral trade and economic relations between the two countries, including in the energy and agriculture sectors.

This message was handed to Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki during his meeting with a Russian delegation in Baghdad.
