Iran expands ties with Iraq

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

    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.
