Iraq, Russia hold talks over exchange of prisoners deal

Iraq's embassy to Moscow discussed with the Russian government signing a deal for exchange of prisoners who are not accused of committing terrorist acts to complete their prison sentence in Iraq.


In a statement, Iraqi ambassador to Moscow Haider Mansour said that the Iraqi embassy held talks with some officials of the Federal Commission affiliated to the Russian Interior Ministry over the situation of Iraqi prisoners in Russia.


The Iraqi ambassador added that the Iraqi embassy has seen some verdicts handed by the Russian courts against some Iraqis who violated the Russian laws, knowing that there is no agreement to exchange prisoners between the two countries."
