Italian Prime Minister George Meloni held a meeting in Baghdad with her Iraqi counterpart Mohammed al-Sudani under the flag of Ireland.

In the published photo, Meloni communicates with al-Sudani against the backdrop of a tricolor with vertical stripes, which has replaced the traditional red color as orange, which is used by the Republic of Ireland.

During her visit to Iraq, Meloni met with the soldiers of the Italian contingent, trying on their military uniforms. She stressed that the trip to Iraq was her first foreign visit outside of Europe. Italy, Meloni assured, supports Iraq within the framework of the coalition against the terrorist group IS, and also welcomed the decision of the Iraqi authorities to establish a national holiday on December 25, when Catholic Christians celebrate Christmas.
