IRAQ TO WORK WITH IRAN ON MILITARY INDUSTRIAL DEVELOPMENT

Janes.com on 21st April reported that Iran and Iraq are to collaborate on reviving Iraq’s military industrial capabilities, Iraqi news media reported.  The agreement covers the transfer of technology to Iraq and the localisation of military and civilian products, as well as efforts to “improve and expand future co-operation in military and civilian industrial projects”.  Specific projects were not detailed, but it was stressed that Iraq was seeking to improve its self-sufficiency in military equipment manufacturing, particularly on systems such as ammunition, mortars, artillery, unmanned aerial vehicles, and communications systems.
