Saudi Arabia supplies electricity to Iraq[BAGHDAD-IN]
Riyadh and Baghdad on Thursday signed a package of memorandums of understanding, most notably a memorandum under which Saudi Arabia will supply Iraq with electricity.
The notes included several areas, including energy, education, health, trade and other matters of interest to both countries, noting that the signing of the notes took place in the guest house in the Council of Ministers in central Baghdad.

Saudi Arabia also pledged a $ 1 billion grant to build a sports city in Baghdad at the start of a two-day visit by Saudi officials to strengthen ties between the two countries.

It is noteworthy that Iraq imports electricity from Iran, to cover part of the lack of energy in the country for many years, where the energy infrastructure was destroyed and neglected, due to decades of wars and siege.
