    The opening of the first branch of a British bank on Iraqi soil attracted many dignitaries, including prime minister Nouri Al-Maliki. Baghdad's grand unveiling of the Standard Chartered branch is the first of three in the country with Erbil and Basra soon to follow suit. For Prime Minister Al-Maliki, it is a testament to the ongoing friendship between the two nations.
