Iraqi and Iranian officials met in Tehran to discuss the necessity to expand IT and Telecoms relations between the two countries.

Fars News agency reported that the Iranian communications and IT Minister, Reza Taqipour met with his Iraqi counterpart, Muhammad Tawfiq-al-Allawi in Tehran on the 10th of March.

Both countries have enjoyed improved relations after the overthrow of Saddam Hussein in 2003. They are working together on a chain of new plans that will link Iraq and Iran and improve the expansion of mutual telecommunication cooperation.

In 2010, an Iranian telecommunication official said that Tehran was ready to upgrade the telecommunications infrastructure and fibre-optic communication network in Northern Iraq.

"In addition to fiber-optic projects, we have the ability to carry out all kinds of telecommunication activities in the region," said Mohammad Saeed Ahmadim, MD of the Telecommunication Company of Kurdistan Mohammad Saeed Ahmadi. Ahmadi also said that the Iranian state had the technical knowledge to fulfill any telecommunication project abroad, and added, “We will start our work whenever authorities of Iraq's northern region state their readiness."
