Iraqi prime minister to visit Korea

Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki will visit Korea next week for talks with President Lee Myung-bak on enhancing economic cooperation between the two countries, Lee’s office said yesterday.

The two leaders will discuss ways to expand cooperation on energy development in Iraq, which has the world’s third-largest oil reserves, and ways to use Korea’s technology and experience for Iraq’s post-war reconstruction during the summit talks slated for next Thursday, the office said.

During his four-day stay that starts Wednesday, al-Maliki is also scheduled to visit key industrial facilities, including an Ulsan plant of Hyundai Motor Co., and receive an honorary degree from Korea University in Seoul for his role in building democracy in the war-ridden Middle Eastern country.
