Shafaq News / The Iraqi Prime Minister, Mustafa Al-Kazemi said on Friday that his government will hold special meetings to follow up the memorandums of understanding signed with European countries and to assess the progress of the financial and economic reform plan.

Al-Kazemi’s speech came upon his arrival to Baghdad from Britain, which was the last leg of his European tour that also included France and Germany.

“We signed memoranda of understanding in the capitals of Paris, Berlin and London to develop economic, security and cultural relations,” Al-Kazemi said, according to his media office.

He pointed out that his talks in the three European countries “touched on the white paper on economic and financial reform, and Europe’s support for developing the performance of economic institutions in the country.”

Al-Kazemi called on the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to follow up the memoranda of understanding signed with the three European countries.

He said that his government will hold special meetings every three months to follow up the signed memoranda of understanding and then evaluate the reform process on the White Paper.

The Kazemi government recently sent a plan to Parliament that includes reforming the country’s financial and economic institutions in an effort to diversify sources of revenue.

Al-Kazemi’s European tour began last Sunday, his first since taking office in May.
