A Saudi delegation will travel to Baghdad this week to start preparations to reopen an embassy in Iraq.
Saudi Arabia also plans to set up a general consulate in the Iraqi Kurdish capital of Arbil. Iraqi President Fuad Masum visited Riyadh late last year, raising hopes of a tentative thaw in long-chilly relations between the Arab neighbours.
Saudi Arabia closed its Baghdad embassy in 1990 following Iraq's invasion of Kuwait.
