(MENAFN - Saudi Press Agency) Boeing says the first of several jets it is selling to Iraq has touched down in Baghdad.

The arrival of the 777-200LR plane in the Iraqi capital on Saturday is the latest sign that Iraq is working to recover and rebuild after decades of war and sanctions.

More planes are coming. Boeing says Iraq has ordered another 30 of the smaller 737-800 model and 10 of its new 787. The first of the 737s will be delivered in the middle of next year, according to a report of the Associated Press.

Iraqi Transportation Ministry spokesman Karim Al-Nouri says the plane's arrival is an important step toward building a large and reliable fleet for the government-owned Iraqi Airways.
