President Masoud Barzani with King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz
Riyadh, Saudi Arabia (KRG.org) - Masoud Barzani, President of the Kurdistan Region, yesterday arrived in Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia, for a visit at the invitation of King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz, Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques.

Dr. Fuad Hussein, Mr Barzani's spokesman, said that the President will hold talks with Saudi officials. He said, "During the visit president Barzani will discuss bilateral relations with the kingdom, besides the security and political situation in Iraq."

On 14 February Iraq reopened its embassy in Riyadh, which had been shut since December 1990, shortly before US-led allied forces drove the Iraqi occupying army out of neighbouring Kuwait.
