    MOSCOW, January 11 (RIA Novosti) - Jordan is ready to cooperate with Russian companies in restoration of the Iraqi economy, a press-release of the Russian Embassy in Amman reads.

    "The matter is about economic cooperation in the forms suitable for both parties," a source in the Russian Embassy said over the phone. Since Jordan historically established close relations with Iraq, it can render the necessary assistance to the Russian companies in Iraq.

    "Jordanian political authorities support the intention of Russian business to occupy a niche in Jordan with the following progress on the regional market," the press-release, signed by Russian Ambassador to Jordan Aleksander Shein, reads.

    Jordan got the rights to participate in the Iraqi postwar settlement in the range from participation in the water-management projects to equipping the new Iraqi Armed Forces, the memorandum, signed by US Under Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz on December 5, 2003, states.
