Iraq on Wednesday resumed oil exports to Jordan, after a four-year halt following the 2003 US-led invasion of Iraq, Iraqi government spokesman Ali al-Dabbagh said. Al-Dabbagh told The Associated Press that Iraq plans to export 10,000 barrels a day by land at a price of $4 dollars cheaper per barrel than market price. Al-Dabbagh refused to say where the oil will be handed over to the Jordanians, citing security reasons. Al-Dabbagh also said the reason the oil is given cheaper than the market price was that Jordan would be in charge of securing tanker trucks transporting the oil.
