Iraq to reopen consulate in Karachi shortly: diplomat

Speaking during a visit at KCCI, Charge d’ Affaires at the Embassy of Iraq in Pakistan, Abdulsalam Saddam Mohaisen, has informed that Iraq is looking forward to reopen its Consulate in Karachi very soon which will be providing all visa related services to the citizens. President KCCI, Agha Shahab was of the opinion that there is a significant potential to enhance trade and investment between the two countries. There is significant potential for Iraq under CPEC as a stepping stone for China’s BRI. SEZs being set up under CPEC provided an ideal opportunity for Iraq’s investors to consider Pakistan for investments and JVs, particularly in the food sector, he added.
