Iraq to establish free-trade zone along border with Iran

Iraqi President Barham Salih has announced that his country has agreed to establish a "free-trade zone" along its border with Iran, following a meeting with his Iranian counterpart, Hassan Rouhani in Tehran.

In a joint press conference in the Iranian capital on Friday, Salih declared that the relationship between the two neighbouring countries is a "fixed principle" that is "rooted in shared history, faith and geography".

"We care about our relationship with Iran," Salih declared.

Salih did not give full details about the free-trade zone.

COMMENT:-

Boy, when Mr. Trump finds out about this he will "tweet" up a storm.

I believe Iraqi OIL export sales will increase dramatically and maybe Turkey's also. I mean, Turkey exported lots of OIL pruchased from ISIS and the USA couldn't seem to see it. Probably invisible or so we are led to believe (MSM manipulation?). I'm on Iran's side and don't believe there is any just cause for sanctions against Iran, nor a legal, moral, or ethical reason for reneging on the agreement signed by Obama and 5 major Nations.
