  • Description

    Relations between Iraq and Syria continue to deteriorate and have bow brought about the closure of the Iraqi Trade Centre in the Syrian capital, Damascus.

    Similarly, the Syrian Government has decided to close its commercial centre in Baghdad, Iraq's capital.

    The moves came after Syria had closed its airspace to Iraqi airliners and ordered Syrian aircraft not to overfly Iraqi territory.

    The dispute between the two countries centres on Syria's use of water from the Euphrates (which flows through both countries) river for irrigation, which Iraq says is threatening the lives of three million Iraqi peasants who depend themselves on the Euphrates for irrigation.
