Iraq gives green light for Bahrain Consulate in Najaf.

BAGHDAD, Sept 16 (KUNA) -- The Iraqi Government announced on Wednesday its

approval over establishment of a consulate for the Kingdom in Bahrain in

Najaf, south of the country. Official government spokesman Ali Al-Dabbagh said the government approved a

recommendation by the Iraqi Foreign Ministry to approve the Bahraini request

over a consulate in Najaf. Baghdad meanwhile retains its right to set up a consulate in the Kingdom of

Bahrain in the future, when conditions and means are opportune, according to

the quid pro quo terms of the 1963 Vienna Convention. Thousands of Bahrainis visit Iraq every year and many visit religious

Shiite sites and perform rites, and also visit Karbala and Kufa nearby.
