Iraq to Sign Water Treatment Deal with Iran

By John Lee.

Iraq's Ministry of Construction and Housing and Public Municipalities is reported to be about to sign a contract worth 10 billion dinars ($8.6 million) with an Iranian company to buy chlorine and alum for water purification.

Tariq al-Kikhany (pictured) said that in view of the cholera epidemic that has hit a number of central and southern governorates, the materials will be delivered urgently to water treatment plants in Baghdad and across the provinces.

His statement followed a meeting with Rostam Ghasemi, Chairman of the Economic Commission for Iranian-Iraqi relations, and the Iranian ambassador, Hassan Danaii.
