Emmanuel Macron participates in the summit meeting held at a resort on the shores of the Dead Sea in Jordan

French President Emmanuel Macron called for allowing Iraq to choose a path that is not dictated by foreign powers, in his speech today, Tuesday, at the Baghdad Summit for Cooperation and Partnership held in Jordan, which aims to help find solutions to the escalating crises in the Middle East.

“There is a path that is not a form of hegemony or imperialism or a model dictated from outside,” Macron said in his speech before the summit held in a resort on the shores of the Dead Sea.

Macron added, “Iraq today is a scene of influences, incursions, and destabilizing operations linked to the entire region.”

The French presidency had said prior to the summit in Jordan, Iraq’s neighbor, that the aim of the summit is to provide “support for the stability, security and prosperity of Iraq,” and added that it hoped it would benefit “the entire region.”
