Basra to Open Border Crossing with Saudi Arabia

By John Lee.

Informed sources in Basra claim that the provincial government intends to open a border crossing with Saudi Arabia with the aim of increasing exports.

Both NINA news agency and Aswat al-Iraq report that the crossing will be in the Ouja al-Batin area, northwest of Basra.

The crossing is expected to be opened later this year.
