Oil Minister Jabar Ali al-Luaibi [Allibi, Luiebi] has met with Mr Lu Ygiang, the President of the Chinese company Jinhua, and his entourage.
The two parties discussed during the meeting about enforcing the bilateral cooperation and the development of East Baghdad oil field.
The Minister confirmed he was keen to prepare the appropriate work environment for the company, while Mr Ygiang said his company was ready to start work after "the completion of all the procedures".
Late last year, the Ministry of Oil signed the initial form of the contract to develop the East Baghdad field with Jinhua.
