Oman said it reopen its embassy in Iraq after a 29-year hiatus.

In a statement on Twitter, the sultanate’s 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”.

The ministry said the embassy would help to boost bilateral relations.

“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.
