Saudi Arabia and Iraq announce agreement to exchange intelligence

Saudi and Iraqi military commanders announced an agreement to exchange intelligence and security information.


:: Saudi and Iraqi military commanders announced on Thursday an agreement to exchange intelligence and security information between the two countries within the framework of “counter-terrorism”.

This came in a press conference which gathered the chief of staff of the Iraqi army, General Othman al-Ghanmi, and his Saudi counterpart General Abdul Rahman Saleh al-Bunyan, in the Iraqi capital Baghdad.

Al-Ghanmi said the two sides also agreed to open the Arar border crossing between the two countries to facilitate the travel of Iraqis to perform Hajj in Saudi Arabia.

Meanwhile, the Saudi Army Chief of Staff noted the importance of exchanging intelligence in the field of combating terrorism. He stressed the need for countries to work together to secure common borders.

He pointed out that the meeting of the two countries officials comes to lay the foundations for improving relations at various levels.

The Iraq-Saudi border is 814 kilometers long, mostly desert in nature, making it difficult to monitor.
