State Secretary Received the Iraqi Minister of Defence


State Secretary Miloslav Stašek received the Iraqi Minister of Defence Erfan Al-Heiali during Minister's working visit to the Czech Republic on Monday, April 23, 2018 at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Both sides agreed on the ongoing positive development of bilateral relations and the exceptional frequency of high-level meetings on both sides. They also expressed their will and intention to keep up this positive trend and to translate it into broader mutually advantageous economic cooperation.

State Secretary congratulated his guest on the victory over the Islamic State and Minister Al-Heiali in return thanked him wholeheartedly for the Czech participation in the Global coalition against ISIL. The Czech support of Iraq's stabilization and reconstruction will continue in the coming years as the State Secretary stressed. At the Donor Conference in Kuwait, the Czech Republic presented its program of assistance to Iraq, for which it allocated 180 Million CZK for the next three years.
