Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi met with Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman, his office said today, a day after his first official visit to the kingdom.

Abdul Mahdi’s meeting with the crown prince came after he met King Salman yesterday, Reuters reported. His office said the leaders signed 13 agreements in areas such as trade, energy, and political cooperation, without giving further details.


The premier has said Iraq would maintain strong ties with Iran, but also with the United States and regional neighbours, many of which, like Saudi Arabia, consider Tehran a foe.
