[Saudi Arabia has provided the lion’s share of suicide-bombers and terrorists since the beginning of the 2nd Gulf War (SEE: al‐Qa`ida’s Foreign Fighters in Iraq: A First Look at the Sinjar Records). Gulf “royals” and Sunni terrorists have intentionally sabotaged the democratically-elected Iraqi govt, since the beginning. Iraqi resistance to this sabotage is sold to the public as the denial of Sunni rights, in order to turn the world against the PM of Iraq. If Salmon manages to bribe al-Abadi into turning away from Syria, then the Saudi/UAE sabotage may continue.]
Jeddah – Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz will meet Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi on Wednesday in Jeddah.
Saudi Arabia’s Arab Gulf Affairs Minister Thamer al-Sabhan told Asharq Al-Awsat newspaper that the meeting would see discussions over bilateral relations and regional developments.
Abadi’s official trip to Saudi Arabia comes following a visit conducted by Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir to Baghdad on February 25.
An official at the Iraqi foreign ministry said the two countries were holding “honest” discussions over regional matters and they were seeking to further boost bilateral relations.
In earlier remarks to Asharq Al-Awsat newspaper, Nizar Khairallah, the first deputy of the Iraqi foreign ministry, said that the two countries were facing common challenges, including the fight against terrorism.
He underlined in this regard the importance of bilateral cooperation between Baghdad and Riyadh to bolster intelligence efforts.
Khairallah noted the presence of shared interests in opening the land borders between the two countries, as well as resuming the direct flight routes between the two capitals.
