France’s President Macron arrives in Baghdad on official visit

France’s President Emmanuel Macron arrived on Wednesday in Iraq’s capital city Baghdad on his first official visit to the country following his trip to Lebanon, according to the Iraqi News Agency (INA).

Macron is expected to meet with Iraqi President Barham Salih and Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhemi, INA reported.

Macron is the most senior foreign official to travel to Iraq since the head of the country’s intelligence al-Kadhimi became prime minister in May.

The French president had arrived in Beirut on Monday for his second visit since the deadly August 4 that killed about 190 people and spurred international outcry for political reform.
