Iraqi wheat trade open to change, warns Minister
Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari has warned that other countries are making offers to supply his country with wheat.

Mr Zebari is holding talks in Canberra with the Foreign Affairs, Trade and Defence Ministers.

Iraq has been a valuable market for Australian wheat growers but the AWB kickback scandal damaged the export relationship.

The Federal Government is set to announce a new single desk wheat export system which will not rest in the hands of AWB.

Mr Zebari says he hopes Iraq can continue to import Australian wheat but he says there are plenty of other offers.

"Iraq imported really all alone for the last 50 or 60 years Australian wheat and we are accustomed to that," he said.

"But definitely this is a competitive market, there are other countries which are interested in the Iraqi market."

Mr Zebari will be talking to ABC TV in an exclusive interview tonight on Lateline at 10:50pm.
