Saudi Arabia’s Ambassador to Iraq Thamer Al-Sabhan announced on Tuesday that the kingdom intends to appoint a military attaché in Baghdad.

The announcement came after his meeting with Iraqi Defence Minister Khaled Al-Obaidi in the Iraqi capital, Baghdad.

Al-Sabhan wrote on Twitter that the pair had discussed bilateral relations between the two countries as well as the kingdom’s keenness to enhance military cooperation with Iraq to serve the needs of both people.

Al-Obaidi briefed the Saudi ambassador on the military operation being carried out by the Iraqi army and the international coalition to regain control of the city of Fallujah from Daesh.

In a statement, Al-Obaidi said the Saudi ambassador congratulated him on the Iraqi army’s victories across the country, adding that it is defending all the Middle East’s security and stability.

He stressed his country’s keenness to establish better relations with its neighbours on the principles of non-interference in each other’s internal affairs.
