AMMONNEWS - Minister of Industry, Trade and Supply, Tareq Hammouri, on Thursday stressed Jordan's keenness to enhance cooperation with Iraq in all domains, especially economic field and to remove all obstacles facing trade exchange and freight movement.

During talks with Iraqi Minister of Industry and Minerals, Saleh Jubouri, on the sidelines of the meetings of the Jordanian-Iraqi Joint Ministerial Committee, Hammouri stressed the importance of joint work to implement the agreements and memoranda of understanding (MoUs) reached by the two sides during their meeting last February, chaired by Prime Minister Omar Razzaz and his Iraqi counterpart Adel Abdul-Mahdi, which aim to upgrade the level of cooperation, especially in the economic field.

Hammouri highlighted the "fraternal relations" between Jordan and Iraq, calling on developing them to reach an "advanced" stage of economic cooperation to serve the common interests and take advantage of the opportunities available in both countries.

He also pointed to the importance of the two countries' efforts to develop economic cooperation and work to establish the joint border economic zone, which will improve economic relations between Jordan and Iraq.

For his part, the Iraqi Minister stressed the importance of boosting economic cooperation between the two countries in various sectors and implementing what they recently agreed upon during the joint committees meetings.
