RIYADH: Saudi Arabia’s foreign minister has praised the Kingdom’s “deep” ties with Iraq during a meeting with Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kadhimi in Baghdad.
Prince Faisal bin Farhan said that he discussed growing relations between the two countries and common challenges with Al-Kadhimi on Thursday.
“Today I was pleased to visit Iraq, this country with which we have deep ties,” Prince Faisal said. “I discussed bilateral relations that are growing steadily and common challenges with Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kadhimi.”
The prime minister was appointed in May after the country was rocked by protests and has promised to deliver reforms.

The two officials discussed bilateral relations, coordinating security efforts to combating terrorism and drugs and securing borders between the two countries.
