Iraq to allow food imports for three months -state news agency


Iraq will allow all food imports for three months in order to enhance food security, the state news agency INA reported on Wednesday, citing the prime ministry.

Iraq, a major grain importer, is taking urgent measures to secure strategic stocks of wheat and support a local food subsidies programme as the Ukraine-Russia conflict raises food supply concerns.

The trade ministry said on Tuesday it is working to allocate 2 million tonnes of wheat for Iraq’s strategic reserves, which would be sufficient for 6 months.
