Saudi plans embassy in Iraq

Remarkable what a difference turning up the heat can make - the Saudis are under US pressure and their response is to comply instantly.

Reuters - 02 August, 2007
Saudi Arabia said yesterday it would send a mission to explore opening an embassy in Baghdad, a move long sought by Washington, but said it was “astounded” by US criticism of its Iraq policies. At a joint news conference with the US secretaries of state and defence, Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud Al Faisal also said his country would take part in a US-planned Middle East peace conference if it addressed meaningful issues.
