BAGHDAD, July 20 (KUNA) -- Head of the Committee on Foreign Relations in the Iraqi Parliament Himam Hamoudy revealed on Sunday, that his country is on the verge of signing a cooperation agreement with the European Union (EU).

This came following a visit to Baghdad, made by First Vice-Chairman of the European Parliament's new permanent ad-hoc Inter-Parliamentary Delegation for Relations with Iraq, Nickolay Mladenov MEP and his accompanying delegation.

Hamoudy in a press statement noted that bi-lateral relations and security-related issues in Iraq were discussed between the officials.

On his part, Mladenov indicated to the evident improvement of security in Iraq which has had a major impact on political harmony. He also suggested Iraq should benefit from past international experiences in equal regard.
