He added that Iraq’s keenness to cooperate with Egypt’s Ministry of Military Production comes as part of the technological, manufacturing, technical, research, and infrastructure capabilities of the latter’s subsidiary companies. This also comes in addition to its remarkable success in implementing many national projects across Egypt.
