BAGHDAD, February 10. /TASS/. Russia is ready to boost industrial cooperation with Iraq, supplying high-quality and affordable products, visiting Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said at talks with Iraqi parliament Speaker Salim al-Jabouri on Wednesday
Rogozin said industry was a promising direction in cooperation. "We are ready to supply (Russian products), as well as to discuss possible joint projects in the industrial sector," said Rogozin suggesting to put emphasis on economic cooperation.
"We have very big potentials, all the more as the prime cost of our industrial products - not only military but also civilian - has declined (because of the depreciating ruble), while their quality is traditionally high," the deputy prime minister said. The Iraqi speaker supported the bid.
The sides also verified positions on the Syrian settlement, discussed the situation in Iraq and a need to pool efforts of all major regional players in fight against Islamic State, a terrorist group outlawed in Russia.
Salim al-Jabouri highlighted the visit of a heavyweight Russian delegation led by Rogozin, saying "We hope the visit will give a sizable boost to different directions of our cooperation, first of all political and economic".
"This cooperation is especially important now, at the difficult time that we are going through," the speaker added.
Taking part in the meeting were also Russian president’s special envoy to the Middle East Mikhail Bogdanov, Deputy Minister for Economic Development Alexander Tsybulsky, Deputy Energy Minister Kirill Molodtsov, Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade Alexander Potapov, Deputy Transport Minister Valery Okulov and the head of the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation, Alexander Fomin.
