The Iraqi delegation will also meet with Egyptian officials in order to discuss of holding the joint Iraqi-Egyptian committee headed by the prime ministers of the two countries in Baghdad soon, the newspaper reported.
The Iraqi delegation will also meet Secretary-General of the Arab League Ahmed Aboul Gheit to tackle the latest developments in the region.
Late August, the three leaders agreed on establishing a new ground road to Egypt through the Jordanian territories. It was also agreed on creating an electricity linkage and an oil pipeline to enhance the tripartite cooperation.
The first trilateral summits were held in Cairo in March 2019, while the second one convened in New York in September of the same year, on the sidelines of the current United Nations General Assembly meetings.
Passenger train No.185, coming from Sohag to Port Said, derailed during its journey in Zzaik, as the accident resulted in the fall of a vehicle in its vicinity from the tracks.
Official sources in the railway told Al-Youm Al-Sabea that the authority’s cranes were pushed to lift the vehicle and tractor departing from its path onto the tracks and return them to their normal course to resume the normal train movement.
The sources added that the accident did not result in any injuries or material damage.
