ISNA – Border Ports Authority of Iraq announced that it will reopen three border crossings with the Islamic Republic of Iran.

The head of Iraq’s Border Ports Authority, Omar Al-Waeli denied reports about the resumption of trade activities between Iran and Iraq.

“At the request of some provinces to reopen some border crossings with Iran, the Border Ports Authority sent a letter to the Iraqi Prime Minister,” he stated.

He emphasized that the decision has not been implemented so far due to non-compliance with health advice.
