Providing Egypt with 4 million barrels of the Iraqi Basra crude per month

During a visit by the Egyptian Prime Minister Hisham Qandeel to Baghdad in early March 2013, the media advisor of the Iraqi Prime Minister Ali Al-Mousowi announced that his country has agreed to supply Egypt with four million barrels of oil per month. Al-Mousowi added that Iraq will consider a request to extend the pipeline from Iraq to Jordan and then to Egypt.


On the other hand, the Iraqi Deputy Prime Minister Saleh al-Mutlaq explored with the Egyptian Prime Minister Hisham Qandeel, who is visiting Iraq at the head of a delegation that included a number of ministers and businessmen, strengthening the relations between Cairo and Baghdad in the areas of investment, services and electricity together with the possible contribution of the Egyptian companies to the project of building the large Faw port, facilitating the transport and aviation between the two countries, and establishing a number of residential compounds and roads using the Egyptian expertise. This goes along with activating a memorandum of understanding in the field of environmental studies and avoiding the damages that could left by companies.
