Iraq's deputy foreign minister on Friday said Iranian troops seized an oil well in southern Iraq along their disputed border.
Deputy Foreign Minister Mohammed Haj Aziz said Friday that Iranian troops seized oil well No. 4 Thursday night.
He said he did not know whether Iranians were still in control of the oil well. The Foreign Ministry and the Oil Ministry are coordinating over what steps to take and were considering summoning the Iranian ambassador to discuss the issue on Saturday, he said.
Such incidents have happened before along the Iran-Iraq border, which was never clearly delineated after the brutal war between the two countries in the 1980s.
