Iran expands ties with Iraq

Lopsided bilateral trade keeps growing, its volume expected to reach $8bn this year.

    While world powers attempt to tighten the sanctions screws on Iran, trade with neighbouring Iraq is booming.

    Both countries were once mortal enemies but since the fall of Saddam Hussein in 2003, Iraq is now a major consumer of Iranian-manufactured goods partly because Iraq has virtually no industry of its own.
