Syria's state cereal body issued a tender on Wednesday to sell 100,000 tons of soft wheat and 100,000 tons of durum wheat from last season's crop for shipment to neighboring Iraq.Before the conflict, Syria used to produce around 3.5 million tons a year.The tender document asked for bids to be submitted in euros on a free-on-trucks basis and said the wheat would be transported from warehouses in Hassaka, in northeastern Syria.Some European traders said they believed Syria had large ending stocks from 2013, having been aided by Iranian wheat imports throughout last year.
