Baghdad, Apr. 2 (AKnews) - The Iraqi Ministry of Industry and Minerals said Friday that the country needed economic cooperation with the Unites States for more than 15 years as of now.

Technical Advisor in the Ministry of Industry, Fadel Isma'il, said his ministry had a comprehensive plan which addresses the extent to which Iraq needs the United States experience in developing factories and industries.

"Iraq wants to expand more economic cooperation with the United States during the coming period, especially with regard to the implementation of projects that develop the infrastructure of the country." Isma'il said.

The next period is a difficult economic phase which requires further academic studies conducted by the by the Americans in the major factories in the United States, according to the advisor.

The ministry will fall in during the coming period to join the World trade Organization (WTO) and the global industry of America as a first step for inclusion in the world countries economically supported by the United States, he said.
