    An agreement to expand trade relations and further co-operation between Iraq and India was signed in the Indian capital, New Delhi, on Tuesday (6 April).

    It was signed by India' Minister for Petroleum Keshava Deva Malaviya and Iraq's Minister for Higher Education and Scientific research Ghanim Abdul Jalil and came at the end of the second session of the Indo-Iraqi joint Commission for Economic, Technical and Cultural Co-operation. The session was held in the Indian capital from 298 March to 3 April, and was co-chaired by Shri Malaviya and Mr. Jalil.

    During his visit to India Mr. Jalil had talks with Indian leaders including President Fakhruddin Ali Ahmed, Prime Minister Indira Gandhi and Ministers for Foreign Affairs, Food, Agriculture and Irrigation, Finance, Industry, Education and Railways.

    The Commission's agenda covered a wide range of subjects and examined in depth matters concerning the petroleum trade, transport and services, industrial collaboration, agriculture, culture and technology.

    During the talks both countries expressed satisfaction at the progress made in the implementation of decisions taken by the first session of the joint Commission held in Baghdad in January 1975.

    A Commission spokesman said this week's agreement marked an important step forward in the strengthening of the traditionally close ties between India and Iraq and both sides had agreed that the decisions taken during the session just closed would be speedily implemented.

    The third session of the Joint Commission will take place in Baghdad later this year.
