Iraq and Saudi Arabia To Develop Border Crossing Project

Officials from the two countries met in Riyadh as they seek to open their land border for trade for the first time in nearly thirty years

The meeting marks great progress between Saudi and Iraq following the resumption of direct flights between the two countries in October, for the first time in 27 years.

According to the Sausi Press Agency, an agreement has been signed between Iraq's border crossing and Saudi Customs to overcome obstacles in the creation of a new land port border facility, situated close to the Saudi town of Arar.

Both countries will be committed to the project with the agreement including the appointment of liason officers from both sides to coordinate construction efforts with work set to commence on the 1st of June.

Saudi Customs governor Ahmad Al-Qabbani said that the border facility will be key in assisting trade and investment ties between the two countries.
