Iraq Welcomes Continued Cooperation with Iran

"Iraq welcomes continued cooperation with the Islamic Iran," the Governor of Iraq's Eastern province of Wasit, Mahdi al-Zubaidi, told FNA on the sidelines of a meeting with the Iranian officials in Iran's Western city of Ilam on Wednesday.

Stressing that Iran and Iraq have developed their bilateral ties during the recent years, he said that Iraq is now in need of reconstruction and the capabilities and potentials of Iran can be useful to this end.


During the meeting, Zubaidi and the Iranian officials inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on expansion of trade, economic and cultural cooperation and settlement of border problems between Ilam and Wasit provinces.

Iran and Iraq have enjoyed growing ties ever since the overthrow of the former Iraqi dictator, Saddam Hussein, in 2003.

Both sides are working on a series of plans to take wide strides in expanding their ties.

Iranian Vice-President Mohammad Reza Rahimi was in Baghdad at the head of a high-ranking delegation last Wednesday and inked several agreements with Iraqi prime minister.

The two countries inked six Memoranda of Understanding (MoUs) to expand cooperation in various sectors such as information technology, health and medication and culture.
