Bijan Zangeneh was quoted by Iranian agency Tasnim as saying that the pumping of natural gas through the pipeline begins are slated to begin on Tuesday based on a memo signed by both countries in 2009.
The deal involves Iranian supplies between 20-25 million cubic meters of gas to Iraq.
It was supposed to go into force in 2013, but was delayed by security issues in Iraq.
Its enforcement this week crowns 2 months of intensive negotiations.
Last October, the 2 countries signed a similar deal, but stipulates 25-40 million cubic meters to an oil station in Iraqi’s province of Basra.
