    of Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and about 60 Russian officials arrive in the capital, Baghdad, this evening, Sunday.


    The ministry said, "Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov will visit Baghdad this evening," noting that "the agenda includes a meeting with his counterpart, Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Fuad Hussein, tomorrow, Monday, in addition to his meeting with the three presidencies."






    According to the London-based Al-Arab newspaper, “Lavrov will be heading a Russian government delegation consisting of 65 political, economic and military people, in addition to Russian companies specialized in a number of fields, and he will work to sign agreements related to investment and economic issues, especially in the oil, gas and energy aspect, with Security files, exchange of experiences, and the possibility of concluding new armament deals between[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]And[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]Lavrov 's

    It is believed that the visit of the Russian Foreign Minister at the head of a huge delegation may carry economic temptations to Iraq to persuade it to thwart Qatar's efforts to obtain a significant share of the French company, especially since the United States is pushing for that to compensate Europe for a percentage of Russian gas supplies, in a message to Saudi Arabia for its lack of response.

    As for economic relations, the volume of commodity exchange between the two countries in 1989 amounted to more than two billion dollars, and the figure before the American invasion reached 7.73 billion dollars, or 15% of the Iraqi commodity exchange as a whole.
