Egypt's military production ministry is set to participate in the International Defence Exhibition in Iraq (IQDEX) which is being held from 9-12 March in Baghdad International Fairground, state-run news agency MENA reported on Sunday.

The ministry will participate in the forum's eighth edition through a pavilion, where it will present defence equipment manufactured by its companies, including the M1A1 tank and armoured recovery vehicle M88A2 HERCULES (Heavy Equipment Recovery Combat Utility Lifting Extraction System).

The participation by the Egyptian ministry represents an important opportunity to access advanced equipment by participating countries, according to MENA.

It will also be an opportunity to invite participating companies to take part in EDEX 2020, set to be held in Egypt in December in light of the success by the first edition last year.
