military ties

Saudi Arabia and Iraq discussed military and security ties on Tuesday in an effort to upgrade relations between the neighbouring states.

The meeting was chaired remotely by Iraqi Foreign Minister Fuad Hussein and his Saudi counterpart Prince Faisal bin Farhan, as part of the political, security and military committee of the Iraqi-Saudi Co-ordination Council.

The council was set up in 2017 to help rebuild areas devastated by ISIS in Iraq and to assist the country’s economic growth.

“The two sides agreed to enhance their military ties by establishing joint exercises and to exchange training courses and experiences in strategic planning, and to continue supporting Iraq’s efforts in co-operation with the international coalition to combat ISIS,” said a statement by the council.

“The goal is to create a common vision for the most important issues of concern,” it said.

The meeting comes as the Saudi Minister of Communication Abdullah Al Swaha held talks with his Iraqi counterpart Arkan Al Shaibani to increase digital ties in the fields of economy and politics between the two states.
