Expanding, strengthening economic ties with Iraq Iran’s goal: Minister

Baghdad, June 3, IRNA – Iranian Energy Minister Reza Ardakanian said in a meeting with the Iraq’s Electricity Minister Majid Mahdi Hantoush in Baghdad on Wednesday that expanding and strengthening economic relations with Iraq is among Iran's goals.

Congratulating the Iraqi official over the opening of the new cabinet of Iraq, Ardakanian hoped that discussing the previous agreements between the two countries and Iran’s three-year long program to cooperate with Iraq in electricity industry be an achievement of his visit to Iraq.

Earlier on Wednesday Ardakanian and Iraqi President Barham Salih in a meeting in Baghdad discussed enhancing bilateral relations, especially in the energy and electricity fields.

Ardakanian is supposed to hold talks with Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kadhimi, and governor of the Iraqi central bank.

Upon his arrival in Baghdad, Ardakanian held a meeting with his Iraqi counterpart.

Ardakanian also met with Ali Abdul Amir Alavi, Iraq's Minister of Finance.

Amir Alavi is slated to visit Iran upon his Iranian counterpart's invitation.

During his stay, Ardakanian is scheduled to hold talks with the Iraqi officials.

Developing Tehran-Baghdad electricity cooperation, synchronizing electricity grids, establishing cooperation in education, and developing power grids are among the topics that will be discussed by both sides.
