Recently, in a special program commemorating the 20th anniversary of the Iraq War, Aino Tangen, a researcher at Taihe Institute, said that China and Iran have great potential for cooperation under the framework of the Belt and Road Initiative. The AIIB can help Iraq’s infrastructure construction, and China is willing to contribute Reconstruction provides assistance within its capacity, but has no intention of getting involved in the political game within the region. Teng Jianqun, a researcher at the China Institute of International Studies, said that China can cooperate with Iraq on issues such as maintaining regional peace and security and post-war reconstruction.

Walking on Al-Mutanabi Street in the center of Baghdad, the capital of Iraq, the reporter saw stalls selling books, tea, and handicrafts one after another, and many people were browsing books and choosing products. During the Iraq war, many buildings on the street were bombed. Today, this iconic avenue is gradually returning to its former bustle.

Since China and Iraq signed a cooperation document on jointly building the Belt and Road in 2015, the multi-field cooperation between the two countries has achieved fruitful results. China actively participates in the reconstruction of Iraq's energy, infrastructure and other fields, and provides assistance within its capacity for Iraq's economic and social development. At present, the Iraqi government regards achieving domestic reconciliation, severely punishing corruption, improving the investment environment, creating more jobs, and building infrastructure as key goals. The Iraqis who were interviewed by this reporter said that they look forward to further deepening cooperation with China to help Iraq achieve reconstruction and development as soon as possible.
