Iraq- Greece Bilateral Relations

Bilateral diplomatic relations between Greece and Iraq are at a very good level. Greece supports all international initiatives aimed at preserving the unity, independence and territorial integrity of Iraq and participates in the efforts of the international community for the establishment of democratic structures, the development of a free and competitive economy and the full restoration of Iraq's relations with neighbouring countries.

At the same time, both countries work together to promote the economic and social reconstruction of Iraq, with emphasis on programs aimed at improving education, health, assistance to refugees and displaced persons, as well as the general improvement of the living conditions of the Iraqi population.

Greece and Iraq already cooperate harmoniously in various areas of international interest and look forward to the development of bilateral cooperation in other areas as well, such as energy resources, shipping, construction and reconstruction of ports. Continuous efforts are being made to upgrade our cultural relations as well, through cooperation of universities, scholarships and the maintenance of antiquities.
