Quoting al-Jafari on the matter, Iraq`s News TV (INTV) added, Iraq`s electrical facilities and network will not be mended in a matter of days, and that is why we need to buy electrical power from Iraq`s neighbors."
Radio Free Iraq had earlier predicted that Iran`s western provinces, such as Ilam and Kermanshah might be selling electrical power to their neighboring Iraqi provinces within the upcoming months. Turning to territorial disputes, al-Jafari said, "Solving Iraq`s territorial disputes with its neighbors need to be done amid favorable conditions."
Regarding the frequenting of other countries` nationals, including the Iranians to Iraq, and surveying about their health at Iraqi borders, he said, "Iraq`s Health Ministry has so far not reported the spread of any catchy disease, including cholera, among the Iraqis, or the foreigners visiting Iraqi cities."
