Tehran and Baghdad reach deal over gas export from Iran
Iran is committed to providing Iraq with natural gas and both countries have reached an agreement, Iraq’s Minister of Electricity, Adil Karim, said on Thursday, April 28.

Karim told Iraqi News Agency Tehran has agreed to renew exporting natural gas to Iraq to run the country’s power plants.

The minister said Baghdad owes payments to Iran and has agreed to fulfil them. Tehran will provide gas and electricity in return.
