Newly appointed Saudi ambassadors to Iraq, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nigeria, Peru and Guinea took oath in front of Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman on Tuesday. The king urged the new envoys to work toward strengthening the Kingdom’s foreign ties.

Thamir bin Sabhan Al-Sabhan is the new ambassador to Baghdad. Saudi Arabia is appointing a residential ambassador in Iraq after a break of 24 years. It closed its embassy in Baghdad in 1991 after Saddam Hussein’s regime invaded Kuwait.

Relations between Saudi Arabia and Iraq have improved markedly since Haider Al-Abadi took over as prime minister in September 2014. Al-Sabhan is a former Saudi military attaché to Lebanon. Abdullah bin Marzouk Al-Zahrani is the new Saudi ambassador to Pakistan while Abdullah bin Hajjaj Al-Mutairy is the ambassador to Bangladesh.

Munir bin Ibrahim Bunjabi has been appointed ambassador to Peru, Fahd bin Abdullah Al-Sufyan to Nigeria and Sulaiman bin Saleh Al-Fareeh to Guinea.

Other new ambassadors who met with King Salman on Tuesday were: Eid bin Mohammed Al-Thaqafi (Oman), Khaled bin Musaed Al-Anqari (Austria), Ahmed bin Younus Al-Barrak (Japan) and Hani bin Abdullah Mumina (Bosnia-Herzegovina).
