“The repercussions of the Russian-Ukrainian war raised many political and economic issues, including food security and energy security, which can only be faced by a joint regional and international alliance. That is why the countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council, the United Nations, the European Union and neighboring countries Egypt, Turkey and Iraq participated in the event under the auspices of France, the first sponsor of this summit. These countries support stability, security and economy in the region. Iraq is important as an oil country, so all countries support Iraq’s stability and security.”
