Amman : An Iraqi delegation headed by National Security Advisor Muwafaq Al-Rubaei will start talks here Tuesday with senior Jordanian officials on supplying oil to Jordan, bilateral security cooperation, and giving financial aid to the Hashemite Kingdom in return for hosting Iraqi refugees.
The Al-Arab Al-Yom newspaper quoted a member of the Iraqi delegation saying the Iraqi delegation will hold talks with Jordanian officials on security issues topped by the handing over of those wanted by the Iraqi government currently present in Jordan.
The two sides are also to discuss fighting terrorism and organising the entry of Iraqis into Jordan, he added.
The source said the delegation will discuss financial aid to Jordan, which was hosting 700,000 Iraqi refugees who had left their homes since the war in their country began in March 2003.
The arrival of the Iraqi security delegation to Amman coincides with a visit of an Iraqi economic delegation to the country headed by official government spokesman Ali Al-Dabbagh which includes Finance Minister Bayan Jabr Solagh.
