Kuwait/Qatar: Baghdad’s further outreach
Prime Minister Adil Abdul-Mahdi has continued with his strategy of trying to position Iraq as a neutral player in regional affairs, with a series of trips around the region to cement bilateral ties while studiously avoided taking sides in the various ongoing disputes. On 22 May, Abdul-Mahdi led a delegation to Kuwait for what his hosts later described as a “fruitful and positive” visit. Among those he met were Emir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmed Al-Jaber Al-Sabah and National Assembly speaker Marzouq Al-Ghanim.
