Saudi editors pay landmark visit to Baghdad


(MENAFN- Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) BAGHDAD, Feb 23 (KUNA) -- A Saudi media delegation has arrived in the Iraqi capital of Baghdad in the first-ever visit in 28 years, the Iraq Journalists Syndicate said on Friday.

Welcomed by the syndicate's chairman and chief of the Federation of Arab Journalists Moayad Al-Lami, the delegation comprised the chief editors of a host of major Saudi newspapers, the syndicate said in a press release.

Saudi Arabia and Iraq hammered out an agreement on October 22, 2017, establishing a bilateral coordination council under the patronage of Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz and Iraqi Prime Minister Haider Al-Abadi, in presence of US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

A new Saudi Ambassador in Baghdad presented his credentials to Iraqi Foreign Minister Ibrahim Al-Jaafari on December 18, 2017, to occupy the diplomatic post which had been vacant for more than one year. (end) ahh.mt
