Iraq To Re-open Pipeline To Syria

Earlier I mentioned that there might be a secret peace agreement reached between Israel and Syria, in which one of the carrots for Syria was getting the much needed oil from Iraq. Well...

(UPI) Iraqi Oil Ministry official Falah al-Ameri told United Press International in Damascus Tuesday the pipeline that stretches from the northern Iraqi city of Kirkuk to the Syrian coastal town of Banyas will start pumping oil in the next few months.

He said while the negotiations have not yet been finalized, the two sides have a "shared desire to restart" the oil supplies, adding the pipeline is functional from the Syrian side but the Iraqi part needs repair.
What a coincidence, or is it?
