Syria eased visa restrictions on Iraqi nationals Tuesday in what comes as a gesture towards improving ties between the two countries after border disputes had stopped movement, Reuters reported.

The Syrian official news agency said that starting February 1 Iraqis will be able to obtain visas at border crossings, rather than at the Syrian embassy in Baghdad.
