ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – Saudi Arabia officially opened its consulate in the Kurdistan Region capital of Erbil on Tuesday, paving the way for closer ties with Riyadh, the Middle East’s economic powerhouse.

With the Saudi Consul General Abdulmunam Abdulerhman Salih Mahmoo officially taking on his post, it is believed that Erbil also will open a representative office in Riyadh.

Kurdistan Region President Masoud Barzani visited Saudi Arabia last December, where he discussed the mutual opening of diplomatic missions.

The Kurdistan Region, which remains the relatively prosperous and stable portion of war-torn Iraq, has attracted many consulates and multinational corporations that have invested in the energy, construction and tourism.

Consulate or Isis spying headquarter?

like to remind kurds that these camel jockys put PYD on their so called terrorist-list and with turkey are the ones behind excluding kurds from the talks in geneva.

Shame on the KRG. We have more important issues to worry about than opening up a embassy for a a filthy Arab country in the heart of kurdistan. President Barzani, no disrespect, but why don't you speak up? Speak up against Turkeys crime against humanity once in a while. Speak up against Saudis human right laws once in a while. Kurds have a image to hold. We want to prove to the west that good people still exist in the Middle East.

Good Step as long as Saudi Arabia doesn't build more mosques in Kurdistan because we have more than we need and we can export some.

Pity they couldn't have done it for real when ISIS invaded instead of running away and leaving all their equipment behind for DAESH to use.
