Iraqi-Iranian agreement to develop oilfields

Iran and Iraq have agreed to develop two oilfields on the common border, Iran's oil minister said on Sunday

Iranian President Hassan Rohani on Saturday called for expanded gas and electricity trade between Iran and Iraq and cooperation to implement the plan to link the railways between the two countries, according to Sputnik.

"Plans to export electricity, gas and perhaps oil are also continuing and we are ready to expand these contacts not only for the two countries, but also for other countries," Rohani said after meeting with Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi.

"We want developed and advanced relations between Iraq and Iran to serve as role models for advanced relations between the countries of the region and Iraq and to expand relations with Kuwait, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Syria, Egypt, Qatar and others," said Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi.

The Iraqi prime minister arrived in Tehran on Saturday, heading a large ministerial delegation, accompanied by a number of Iraqi businessmen, on a two-day official visit, the second outside Iraq, since taking office.
