Iraq says to open Syrian border crossing in coming days

Iraq's armed forces chief of staff Monday expressed hope that the country's border crossing with Syria would be opened in the coming days after meeting his Syrian and Iranian counterparts in Damascus, ONA reports citing the Dailystar.

"God willing the coming days will witness the opening of the border crossing and the continuation of visits and trade between the two countries," Lt. Gen. Othman al-Ghanimi said at a news conference broadcast by Syrian state television.
