Iraq keen to reopen embassy in Dhaka
Iraq has expressed keen interest to reopen its embassy in Bangladesh.
The Iraqi embassy stopped operation in Dhaka following the US-Iraq war in 2003.
In a letter to Foreign Adviser Iftekhar Ahmed Chowdhury, Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari expressed his government's willingness in this respect.
Zebari said the decision (to reopen embassy) has been taken in recognition of Bangladesh's support for Iraq.
The foreign adviser said, "We will welcome Iraq's decision to reopen its embassy. I believe it will help intensify brotherly bilateral relation with Iraq."
