“…on November 26, 1984, full diplomatic relations [with Iraq] were reestablished and Ambassador Nizar Hamdoon took office in the Iraqi Embassy. That same day, [Iraqi] Foreign Minister Tariq Aziz was welcomed by President [Ronald] Reagan at the White House. Iraq was America’s new friend in the region.”
