Sharjah24 – Reuters: The European Union will invest 400 million euros to help Iraq's recovery, the bloc's foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said on Wednesday.
Speaking at a Reconstruction Conference for the country in Kuwait, Mohgerini said that amount would be in addition to individual member states' contributions.
