During a meeting between Aqaba Special Economic Zone Authority Chief Commissioner Nasser Shraideh and Iraqi Transport Minister Kadhim Al Hammami, both sides discussed twinning Jordanian and Iraqi ports and establishing an air freight link between the countries airports. 

Hammami and Shraideh also highlighted plans to improve railway links and truck shipping to reach Egypt, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.
