Iraq has partially reopened another border crossing into Iran.
The Mandali border crossing (known as Soomar on the Iranian side of the border) was reopened on Saturday in a ceremony attended by Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kadhimi.
The border, which was shut down in early March after the outbreak of the novel coronavirus, has now resumed activity for limited trade.
The terminal, in the eastern Diyala Province of Iraq, will be operational on two days a week for trade exchange, the Iraqi Border Crossing Authority said in a statement.
Established in 2014, Mandali is the closest route from Iran to northern Baghdad, Samarra and the Iraqi Kurdistan region.
