(MENAFN) Iran, Iraq agree to return to 1975 Algiers Agreement On Tuesday, Iraq and Iran have agreed to return to the Algiers Agreement inked in 1975.

The pact was contracted to settle border disagreements and later served as the basis for other bilateral agreements, but cancelled by Iraq's then vice president Saddam Hussein in 1980.

Both parties proclaimed a road map to resolve bilateral problems like separation of their border, possession of oil fields and dispute over the Shatt al-Arab, according to a joint statement issued from the prime minister's office in Iraq on the second day of meetings with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani,

Iraq and Iran also vowed political determination to wage a war against supporting terrorism, dredging of the border river and decided that tourism, pilgrimage and commerce visas would be allowed to citizens of both nations starting from April 1.
