The retailer already has outlets in Azerbijan and Uzbekistan, with a burgeoning international business, which accounts for around 60 per cent of all sales.

Ben Gordon, chief executive of Mothercare, said: “Iraq has 30 million people – clearly it’s a country with a lot of potential.

"We’re Alshaya’s first brand there. We were the first in Syria. We tend to be the lead brand, the brand that works best."
