Turkish PM in Baghdad to Boost Ties

Erdogan who heads a large business delegation including Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu, will also travel to Iraq's northern autonomous Kurdish region.

PKK will be another important topic, which will be discussed during Erdogan's visit to Iraq.

During his visit, Erdogan has met with the Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, President Talabani and Parliament speaker Osama al-Nujaifi.

The Turkish Prime Minister congratulated the Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki on forming his government and described the ties between the two countries as immensely significant.

Analysts believe that Iraq needs to increase cooperation with the neighboring countries, as the country has been isolated for more than eight years, since the US-led invasion began in 2003.

Trade between Iraq and Turkey amounted to seven billion dollars in 2009. The two countries have laid plans to further improve cooperation in trade.

Referring to his visit to Iraq on October 15, 2009, Erdogan mentioned that high level strategic cooperation council meetings had taken place and this would be the start of a new period in relations between Turkey and Iraq.
