    Iraq and Iran are neighbours: Around $25m worth of Iranian goods enter Iraq every day.

    But it is not clear what will happen when a three-month US waiver that allows Baghdad to trade with Tehran expires.

    Iraqi traders are worried, as Iranian goods are much cheaper than those from other countries.

    Al Jazeera's Osama Bin Javaid has this report from Baghdad.
