Germany warned on Wednesday against too much expectations of the upcoming conference on the future of Iraq to be held in the Egyptian resort of Sharm el-Sheikh.
“The conference should not be overloaded with too much expectations. However, it is also quite clear that the stabilization of Iraq requires the assistance of neighbor states as well as the international community,” said German foreign ministry spokesman Martin Jaeger on Wednesday.
German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier will leave for Egypt on Thursday to join top diplomats from around the world for the two-day conference on stabilizing Iraq.
The Sharm el-Sheikh conference starts on Thursday with the launch of the International Compact with Iraq (ICI), an initiative providing a framework for Iraq’s security and economic development. A ministerial meeting of states neighboring Iraq will also be held there on Friday.
