Iraqi Minister of Health Ali al-Alwan kicked off his visit to Lebanon with a meeting with Minister of Public Health Jamil Jabaq, discussing with him an array of topics on the agenda of the meeting, especially the means to implement the memorandum of understanding signed during the latter's visit to Iraq last July.

Following the meeting, the two ministers held a press conference during which Minister Jabaq welcomed al-Alwan and the accompanying delegation, pointing out that the two sides are in the process of implementing the initial agreement signed in Baghdad to achieve cooperation between Lebanon and Iraq.

"We will put all our capabilities at the service of supporting Iraq, the brotherly country, in terms of training cadres and personnel in the management of hospitals and nursing staff."

For his part, al-Alwan expressed his happiness to visit Lebanon, pointing out that "the discussion focused on a serious and intensive implementation of what was agreed upon during the very important visit of Minister Jamil Jabaq to Baghdad, which contributed to strengthening cooperation and joint action between Lebanon and Iraq."

Al-Alwan expressed his gratitude for the initiatives taken by Minister Jabaq to ensure that Iraqi patients are treated equally to Lebanese patients.

"Iraq is facing a major challenge in rebuilding its health system due to the conditions it has gone through over three decades," he said. "Therefore, we are interested in coordinating at a high level to train Iraqi staff and exchange visits," he stressed.
