TEHRAN, Apr. 30 (MNA) – According to the Head of the Iran-Iraq Joint Chamber of Commerce, the procedure of paying Iraq's debt to Iran will begin in coming days.

Saying that preparations have been made to pay Iraq's debt to Iran, Yahya Al-e-Eshaq said, "According to the agreements reached between Tehran and Baghdad, the procedure of paying Iran's dept will begin in the coming days."

Iran's state-owned sector will receive $ 1 billion from Iraq through the means of Iran's Central Bank, Al-e-Eshaq said.

Iranian private sector will also receive its 9 billion dollars assets from Iraq and there is no problem in this regard, he added.
