Iran has basically agreed to pump 25 million cubic meters (mcm) per day of natural gas to Iraq.

On January 30, Iranian Oil Ministry spokesman Alireza Nikzad-Rahbar said the country would start exporting natural gas to Baghdad by next summer.

Nikzad-Rahbar added that the "friendship" pipeline project under construction between Iran, Iraq and Syria, is the most important project currently pursued by the ministry.

The pipeline would be designed in such a way that it would be able to deliver gas to other Muslim countries like Jordan and Lebanon in the future.

The 56-inch pipeline will start from Assaluyeh, near the massive offshore South Pars Gas Field in southern Iran, and will continue into neighboring Iraq to feed three Iraqi power plants running on gas.

Iran and Iraq gets Bhai Bhai. What does it imply for the region?

Fars News Agency :: Iran to Send Medical Team to Iraq

He appreciated Iran for its humanitarian aids to Iraq, and said the medical team will be sent to Maysan province after Iraq's health ministry officials made repeated requests in this regard.

Iran and Iraq have enjoyed growing ties ever since the overthrow of the former Iraqi dictator, Saddam Hussein, during the 2003 US invasion of the Muslim country.

Both sides are working on a series of plans to take wide strides in expanding their ties.
