SULAIMANI (ESTA) — Iraq and China signed 15 agreements under the auspice of Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi, the premier’s office said on Thursday.

Kadhimi’s office said in a tweet that the Chinese government would build 1,000 school buildings across Iraq.

“This is within the framework of cooperation agreement between the Iraqi and Chinese governments,” the prime minister’s press office said.

The two countries have signed several agreements in the past months. In August, Baghdad signed an initial agreement with state-owned POWERCHIA to build solar power plants with a capacity of 2,000 megawatts.

Earlier this month, the Iraq Drilling Company signed a deal with China’s Zhongman Petroleum and Natural Gas Group (ZPEC), including providing support and completion of work associated with drilling and reclamation operations.
