Talks fail to resolve Iraq wheat stalemate
Three shiploads of Australian wheat remain stalled off Iraq despite urgent high-level negotiations at the weekend between the new Iraqi Government and a delegation from monopoly wheat exporter AWB.

AWB's managing director Andrew Lindberg and Middle East marketing director Michael Long flew to Iraq to discuss the disputed shipments with Iraqi Prime Minister Ibrahim Jaafari, a deputy president and senior officials.

An AWB spokesman said the talks had been useful but the Iraqis stated they needed to continue discussions to find a mutually agreeable solution.

The ships contain the final 120,000 tonnes of a one million-tonne contract won last year by AWB to Iraq, one of its biggest markets.

Iraq has claimed they are contaminated with iron filings, at odds with Australian tests, triggering speculation the refusal to unload the paid-for cargoes may stem from other factors, including United States pressure. The AWB spokesman said the Iraqis were still awaiting the results of further tests.
