Iran has raised its export of natural gas to Iraq to 7 million cubic meters (mcm) a day, Iraqi electricity ministry spokesperson Ahmed Musa told Rudaw English on Monday – a partial restoration of the supply Tehran had cut to Baghdad because of debt repayment delays.

"Iran raised the amount of its natural gas exported to Iraq from 3 million mcm to 7 million mcm on Sunday, with the hope that the amount would be raised to 15 million mcm soon," Musa told Rudaw English.

Iran slashed its energy exports to Iraq in December because Baghdad was “in debt of more than five billion dollars," the state-run National Iranian Gas Company (NIGC) said in a statement in December.
