YouTube recently announced a partnership with Arabic TV news network Al Arabiya, its first-ever partnership with an Arab TV network. Together they will launch "Iraq Looks Forward," a series of interviews on YouTube in which Iraqi leaders answer viewers' questions about the future of the country.

On its blog, YouTube invites the public to engage directly with top Iraqi officials and submit their questions to Prime Minister Nouri Al-Maliki, the Prime Minister of the Kurdistan region of Iraq, Barham Salih, and other Iraqi politicians. Users can submit questions in English or Arabic and can vote on which questions they think should be asked.
