Rome, August 20 - Premier Matteo Renzi landed in
Baghdad Wednesday morning for a brief visit to the war-torn
country where he was scheduled to tour a refugee camp in Erbil.
In the Iraqi capital, Renzi was scheduled to meet President
Fuad Masum, who is in charge of forming the new government of
Haidara Al Abadi, as well as the outgoing prime minister Nuri Al
Maliki.
His visit comes as the Italian parliament begins debate
over arming Kurds against ISIS militants and the Italian
government readies aid shipments.
While in Erbil, the Italian premier is also expected to
meet the president of the Kurdistan regional government, Masud
Barzani.
The trip came after Renzi last week vowed to start arming
the Kurdish pesh merga along with other western countries who
have already started doing so.
It will take 24-36 hours to start shipments once the
Italian parliament approves the measures.
