Iran has agreed to ferry 1 million liters of fuel to Iraq to meet domestic needs for its rickety power plants, Iraqi ambassador to Tehran said.


Mohammed al-Sheikh said the deal under which Iran will furnish Iraq with fuel was signed during the recent visit by Deputy Prime Minister Burhem Saleh to Iran.


Saleh led a large delegation to Tehran comprising high-ranking officials among them the ministers of electricity, trade and foreign affairs.


Sheikh said “more measures” were taken to boost bilateral ties. However he declined to say whether other major deals were signed.


Iran has emerged as Iraq’s top trading partner in the five years since the U.S. invasion. Iraqi shops and stores brim with Iranian goods.


Iranian firms are currently the most active in Iraq, implementing projects worth hundreds of millions of dollars.
