Tehran calls for further cooperation between Iranian, Iraqi private sectors

Baghdad, Iran's ambassador to Iraq underlined here on Wednesday the importance of strengthening relations between private sectors of the two countries.

Private sectors play a significant role in developing the two countries' relations, Iraj Masjedi said in a meeting held in Baghdad where a number of senior Iraqi economic officials including Chairman of the National Investment Commission Sami Al Araji and President of the Federation of Iraqi Chambers of Commerce Jaafar al-Hamdani attended.

Efforts to achieve consensus among businesspersons and following up independent and principled policies will help improve marketing, Masjedi said.

Iraq's al-Hamdani, too, stressed the need to foster cooperation with Iran, calling for direct presence of the Iranian companies in Iraq and the close cooperation between the Iranian businesspersons and their Iraqi counterparts.
