A handout picture released by Iraq’s prime minister’s media office, shows Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi (R) receiving Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi (L) and Jordan’s King Abdullah II, in the capital Baghdad, on June 27, 2021.

Egypt, Jordan and Iraq agreed to bolster security and economic cooperation at a tripartite summit. The move came as Iraq seeks to move closer to Arab allies of the United States in the Middle East. Iraq is also seeking to establish itself as a mediator between Arab countries and Iran, after reportedly hosting talks in April between Tehran and Riyadh.
