The Iraqi Provisional Governing Council has appointed a charge d'affaires in Sana'a.
It's the first official contact with Sana'a and shall open the path for contacts leading to the re-establishment of relations between Sana'a and Baghdad since last April, when the former Iraqi government was overthrown.
The new post began this week and shall remain until a new ambassador is appointed.
