    Pakistan aid team reaches Baghdad


    BAGHDAD, Feb 2: Pakistan's Health Minister Abdul Malik Kasi
    arrived here on Friday with a 25-member delegation on an official
    visit to Iraq, the state Iraqi News Agency (INA) reported.

    The delegation was met at Baghdad international airport by Iraqi
    Health Minister Umeed Madhat Mubarak and Pakistan's
    ambassador to Iraq.

    INA said Mr Kasi would deliver a letter from Pakistan Chief Executive Gen Pervez Musharraf to
    President Saddam Hussein. The contents of the letter were not released. "The delegation will hold
    talks with a number of Iraqi officials on means of developing cooperation between the two countries,"
    Mr Kasi was quoted as saying.

    The delegation includes doctors, paramedics and journalists. APP news agency said the delegation's
    plane was carrying five tons of medicines and surgical goods. Iraq has been under sweeping UN
    sanctions since its 1990 invasion of Kuwait.-Reuters

    Yes, indeed this is great news. And the fact that CNN covered this story too shows the importnace others attach to the minister's visit. Pakistan is finally pursuing a foreign policy that is in the soverign interests of our country, and our "Look west" policy.

      Yeah, and it must put a dent into US plans, that we are not as isolated as some people think.
      Having strong ties with the ME, is the only way out of this financial crisis.
      But i wonder why it took so long in the making.
      But it is good as pakistan this time stands out on its own, and not with a group of countries.

        In pursuit of Pakistan's "Look West" policy our government could play a constructive role in reconciling Iraq and its neighbours? Syria, Turkey and Iran etc are all itching to fully normalise relations with Baghdad. Pakistan could persuade the Gulf states to follow suit, and that would truly bury the economic embargo against Iraq.
