Emmanuel Macron, the French president, met with Mohammed Shia al-Sudani, the prime minister of Iraq. They signed a series of strategic agreements to increase Iraq’s economic cooperation with Paris, particularly in the areas of energy and public transport.


The Elysee Palace released a statement in the early hours stating that France and Iraq had signed a treaty to strengthen bilateral relations in areas such as renewable energy, anti-corruption, and security.


“Macron and Shia al-Sudani have reaffirmed that they will complete large network infrastructures projects based upon French know-how. They have also pledged to give Iraq the expertise of French companies,” said Elysee.


“They expressed their support for the implementation of TotalEnergies’ multiple-energy project, which is based on solar energy and gas investments.”


In 2021, TotalEnergies signed an agreement with Baghdad to build four huge solar, gas, and power projects in southern Iraq for a 25-year period. This was a sign of hope that the exodus would reverse. In recent years, Shell, BP, and Exxon Mobil have all tried to reduce their operations in Iraq.
