Oman To Reopen Embassy In Iraq After 29 Years

Oman said it will reopen its embassy in Iraq after a 29-year hiatus, in its official Twitter account, in turn, boosting bilateral relations between Oman and Iraq.

The Foreign ministry said Oman decided to reopen the embassy “based on the fraternal ties and historical ties between the Sultanate of Oman and the Republic of Iraq”.

“Undoubtedly, the reopening of the Omani Embassy in Baghdad will contribute to the development of relations between the two countries and the two brotherly peoples in various fields,” the ministry added.

Oman closed the embassy in 1990 after dictator Saddam Hussein invaded Kuwait.

The move comes after Saudi Arabia announced earlier this year that it would open a new consulate in Baghdad, countering Iran’s influence in Iraq.
