Syria, Iraq Hold Talks on Planned Oil Pipeline, AlWatan Reports

Dec. 6 (Bloomberg) -- Syria and Iraq have completed technical talks about a planned pipeline for transporting Iraqi oil to Mediterranean ports, AlWatan daily reported, citing an official speaking with the Kurdistan Independent News Agency.

Iraqi officials will report on the discussions within three days, the Damascus-based newspaper reported, citing comments by an adviser to the Iraqi government, Salam Al-Quraishi, talking to AKNEWS, the Kurdish news agency. The results of the talks were positive, AlWatan quoted Al-Quraishi as telling AKNEWS.

The 225-kilometer (140-mile) pipeline would transport Iraqi crude across Syria to the Mediterranean Sea and have an export capacity of about 1.7 million barrels of oil a day, he said.
