Saudi Arabia/Iraq: Saudi Arabia to Reopen Border with Iraq After 27 Years

Saudi Arabia strengthens ties with Iraq in a bid to half the growing influence of Iran

After 27 years, Saudi Arabia is set to open the Arar border crossing with Iraq, establishing joint trade deals between Riyadh and Baghdad. The Iraqi government had deployed troops to protect the desert route leading to Arar and has called its opening a "significant move" to boost ties. The border was initially closed after Baghdad and Riyadh cut ties following former Iraqi President Saddam Hussein's invasion of Kuwait. Some have suggested that the move is partly an effort by Saudi Arabia to strengthen ties with Iraq in order to halt the growing influence of their regional Shia enemy, Iran.
