Iraq, Poland to expand archaeology cooperation
Iraq an Poland are conducting talks on how to boost archaeological ties, said a senior official from Iraq’s Archaeology Department.

In a statement, Abdulkarim Fleih said the countries are working on an 11-item agreement which includes, among other things, the resumption of polish excavation activities in Iraq.

Polish scientists were active in excavating ancient Iraqi sites and they have helped shed light on little known Mesopotamian epochs and made magnificent discoveries.
