Referring to the developing relations between Iran and Iraq and also to the limited presence of the terrorist MKO in Iraq, he said: "terrorists can not have any influence on the political process". Habilian's correspondent asked: "How do you see the prospect of Iran-Iraq relations on the issue of oil?" Iraqi oil minister answered: "We try to use the energy, as a means for cooperation and not dispute (the way it was used by the former regime), to bolster Iran-Iraq relations. Therefore, we believe that a lot of activities can be done in the field of the two countries' common interests. This historical visit by the prime minister will activate a lot of issues which would preserve and strengthen the ties of the two countries in the best scale." "We discussed a lot of issues regarding energy sector, including oil and electricity. We believe that Iranian people and Iranian leaders support Iraqis in their efforts to govern their own country and build political democracy," he added. Bahr Al-Olum pointed to the projects and contracts, agreed by the two sides and said: "One of the project that we discussed with the Iranian authorities is a pipeline across Arvand River; from Basra to Abadan. This pipeline takes oil from Basra to Abadan Refinery and brings back petrol, gasoline and other oil products to Basra. This project is strategic and certainly it has the capacity to bring a lot of wealth for both countries." "We also discussed other issues such as natural gas, petrochemical materials, and these agreements can be conducted in the right time and they can benefit both sides." In response to this question that "whether presence of terrorists, especially the MKO, in Iraq can hinder the projects?", he said: "I doubt; because terrorist groups can't hinder political processes. They couldn't do that in the past and they'll never be able to do that in future since Iraq has a lot of activities in the north and the south and I believe that these limited terrorists will be stopped one day because the political process goes on and we are successful in this regard." This senior Iraqi official referred to the improvement of the situation in Iraq and said: "After elections, national assembly, after national assembly forming the government and now waiting for the draft of constitution by the committee. Finally, terrorist activities can not have any effects on the political process." Also, in an interview with the Al-Alam news channel about the outcomes of his visit to Iran, he talked about Basra-Abadan pipeline and the capacity of two sides for cooperation. He pointed to the terrorist MKO and said that Iraqi National Council made a decision about this group in late 2003 and considered it a terrorist group, so it will never cooperate with this group.
