Iraq and Turkey have agreed to form a committee to help facilitate trade between the two countries.
At a meeting in Baghdad on Wednesday between Iraq's Minister of Trade, Dr. Alaa Al-Jubouri, and his Turkish counterpart, Muhammed Muş, it was also decided to hold a forum for businessmen in Istanbul at the end of September.
Discussions also included easing the flow of goods through the Ibrahim Al-Khalil border crossing, and facilitating the granting of entry visas to businessmen and investors from both countries.
