(MENAFN - Qatar News Agency) Dozens of trucks loaded with Jordanian farm produce crossed into Iraq as exports resumed after Baghdad reopened the border.

Iraqi authorities yesterday reopened the post of Treibel, a key conduit between the two neighbors that was closed on January 9 along with two border crossings with Syria.

Iraqi officials confirmed that cross-border travel and trade are back to normal after the post reopened Friday morning, the official news agency Petra reported.

Jordan Exporters and Producers Association for Fruit and Vegetables, Zuheir Jweihan, told Petra that about 80 trucks loaded with vegetables had crossed to Iraq on Friday and Saturday.

He said 50 trucks had entered the Iraqi market today reviving Jordanian farmers' hopes of marketing their farm produce in Iraq, Jordan's major trading partner.
