AMMAN — Jordan and Iraq have to work out the best ways to cooperate with regards to the reconstruction and development projects in Iraq, Iraqi Ambassador in Amman Safia Al Souhail said on Wednesday.

The diplomat made the remarks during a consultation meeting that attracted the participation of Jordanian Construction Contractors Association President Wael Toukan and president of the Iraqi Contractors Union Ali Fakher, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported. 

Iraq's reconstruction, a process expected to kick off after the Iraqi forces eliminate the remnants of terrorist groups, includes infrastructure projects and rehabilitation of Iraqi workforce in jobs needed in the Iraqi labour market, the Iraqi side said.

Both sides agreed to continue talks in Baghdad earlier next year when a Jordanian economic delegation is scheduled to visit the neighbouring country.
