Governor of the Central Bank of Iran says Iraq has paid a large part of its debt to Iran. The debts are mainly related to Iranian gas and electricity export to the neighboring country.
The announcement comes following banking agreements between the governors of the two central banks signed last February. 
“President Hassan Rouhani and Iraq’s Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi were particularly anxious about putting into effect the banking and financial agreements signed by the two sides,” Abdolnaser Hemmati wrote in an Instagram post.
