Iraqi official calls for promotion of ties with Iranian province

Najaf, Dec 2, IRNA – Chairman of Iraq's Najaf Province Council Khadhir al-Jabouri called for expansion of economic and tourist ties with the province of Qom in Iran.

Al-Jabouri made the call in a meeting on Tuesday with Iran's Consul General in Najaf Hamid Makarem.

He also called for promotion of bilateral ties between Iraq's province of Najaf with other Iranian provinces.

Meanwhile, the Iranian diplomat, for his part, urged the Iraqi side to try to solve problems created for the Iranian flights in Najaf Airport.

Iran's airlines have halted their flights to Najaf since a few weeks ago due to certain extra financial demands made by officials of Najaf Airport.

Al-Jabouri promised to try his best to solve the existing problems.
