Saudi Foreign Minister in Landmark Visit to Iraq

By John Lee.

Saudi Arabia’s foreign minister Adel al-Jubeir has met senior Iraqi officials in Baghdad, in the first such visit by a Saudi foreign minister since 1990.

Last year, the Saudis appointed an ambassador in Iraq for the first time in a quarter of a century, but later demanded his removal after he made critical remarks about Iranian influence in Iraq.
