Iraq receives first gas oil cargo from Iran

Alireza Ashnagar, Iran’s Kordestan province deputy governor general for political, security and social affairs said on last Wednesday that Iran dispatched the first cargo of its gas oil to Iraq’s Kurdistan region.

He also mentioned that 290,000 liter of gas and oil were sent by 10 tankers to the Iraqi Kurdistan region in a bid to enhance living condition of people who are living in the border areas especially. It would also prevent smuggling of fuel by local people.

Iran has an important role to play in the reconstruction process of Iraq. Presently Iraq imports goods from Iran, like construction materials, cars, spices, fruits, medicines, etc. As per reports, in 2013, the volume of trade between Iraq and Iran was $12 billion.
