Majid al-Qasabi Visits Iraq To Improve Ties


The Saudi Arabian trade minister Majid al-Qasabi has welcomed the latest developments in the relationship between Baghdad and Riyadh. About $1bn support was offered by Saudi Arabia when their officials reached Iraq and it would be used for building a sports stadium. Saudi Arabia also started a new consulate at Baghdad which will be the first among three to be set up across the nation.

Majid al-Qasabi also met Iraq Prime Minister Adil Abdul Mahdi during the visit along with other officials. The land border is expected to get opened during this year according to Saudi officials which will be a major step in developing the relationship between two nations.
