Russia-Iraq Meeting




MOSCOW -- The Russian-Iraqi Sub-Commission for Oil and Gas will hold meetings in Moscow on Monday, Itar-Tass reported Friday.


Representatives of the two countries will reportedly discuss declining oil prices on world markets and the new stage of the UN's oil-for-food program, which is to begin this summer.


Iraqi Deputy Oil Minister Faiz Shakhin is likely to lead the Iraqi delegation, an unidentified source in the Russian Fuel and Energy Ministry told the agency. No other details were available.
