Iraq's finance minister has brought a US$15 million grant from his government on Thursday to help Syrian authorities cope with the burden of hosting over a million Iraqi refugees. During the visit, Bayan Jabr is also expected to resolve the issue of Iraqi assets Saddam Hussein's regime had entrusted in Syrian banks.
