ONLINE EVENT

Wednesday, February 9, 2022, 10:00 – 11:15 a.m. EST

Saudi Arabia and Iraq have long had a complex relationship, at times vying for positions of leadership in the Arab world and often closely influenced by each country’s stance toward other powers, notably Iran. After tense relations following the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait in 1990, the relationship became closely tied to Iranian influence in Iraqi affairs after the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003. Today, both countries have taken steps to improve bilateral relations, which remains crucial for the regional order and for Iraqi domestic politics

 

On February 9, the Center for Middle East Policy at Brookings will host an event to discuss this important relationship and its implications for American interests.

 

Viewers can submit questions for speakers via email to events@brookings.edu or on Twitter using #MERelations.
