The exchange of congratulatory messages , the recognition of political recent evolution`s and the clearly stated desired of H.E. President Fuad Masum to continue the development of economic cooperation with Romania, as well as the positive trend of cultural and diplomatic cooperation are creating the basis for a rosy future in Romania-Iraqi friendship.
