Iran denies arms deal with Iraq
TEHRAN, Feb. 25 (MNA) Irans ambassador in Iraq has said no arms trade deal has been signed between Iran and Iraq.

No such deal has been signed, he added, if Iraqis proposed to sign an agreement, Iran would address the issue.

Reuters reported yesterday that Iran and Iraq had signed an arms deal worth $ 195 million in last November. Asked whether Iraqi foreign minister would visit Tehran, he told that Hoshyar Zebari would visit Tehran to solve issues of Arvand River. The legal process has finished and both sides will discuss the implementation, Danaifar added.
