    ANKARA, Oct. 30 (Xinhua) -- Turkish State Minister for Foreign Trade Zafer Caglayan said Friday that two more border passes would be opened with Iraq by the end of 2010, the semi-official Anatolia news agency reported.

    The move came in accordance with a memorandum of understanding for the opening of the two more border crossings, Caglayan was quoted as saying.

    Caglayan said busy traffic in Turkish-Iraqi border passes caused delays, noting that Turkey and Iraq signed the memorandum of understanding to overcome the delays and contribute to trade.

    The Turkish minister also said establishment of a common logistic center was also on the agenda, adding, "Turkey will extend support to establishment of a free zone in Iraq."
