Iran, Iraq favor boosting health cooperation

Baghdad, June 11, IRNA – Iran's Ambassador to Iraq Iraj Masjedi and Iraqi Health Minister Hassan Mohammed al-Tamimi on Thursday stressed the need for promoting cooperation in the health sector.

During the meeting, both officials agreed to reopen all Iraqi borders with Iran twice a week for commercial exchanges.

They also discussed the issue of granting entrance permission for the Iranian companies and agreed talks be held between the two sides on the issue of managing cooperation at high levels, especially the coronavirus situation.

The Iraqi minister said that the health situation in Iraq is now such that it has made it impossible for pilgrims to travel to the holy shrines.

Over the past month since the formation of the Al-Kadhimi government, Masjedi has met with the new prime minister, interior, defense, transportation, labor and social affairs, finance, higher education and oil ministers to help strengthen political, economic, cultural and social ties between Iran and Iraq.
