During a joint meeting of Iranian and Iraqi economic activists in Tehran, al-Hamdani thanked Iran for its support of Iraq in fighting Da’ash.

The head of the Federation of Iraqi Chambers of Commerce noted the banking problems between Iran and Iraq, stressing that there are different mechanisms to raise this problem, pointing out the need to benefit from them for the transfer of capital.
He pointed out that the two sides are using local and joint banks to overcome this problem, noting that in the case of the desire of Iranian banks, the two sides can establish joint Iranian-Iraqi banks.
