Iran, Iraq to Cooperate on Telecoms

By John Lee.

Iran and Iraq have reportedly agreed to reduce mobile phone roaming charges, and to cooperate more closely on other issues relating to telecommunications.

The development follows a visit by Iraqi Minister of Communications, Hassan Kadhim Al-Rashed [Kazem Hassan Rashed], to Tehran to meet Iran’s Communications and Information Technology Minister, Mahmoud Vaezi.

Minister Vaezi said:

“Iran and Iraq have long borders, so we need to take some measures to reduce frequency mix-ups.

“On certain days, especially religious anniversaries, a large number of Iranians travel to Iraq, so we need better cooperation on such days.”
