Saudi Arabia and Iraq signed a pact Monday that ruled out the use of force between the two Arab neighbors and interference in each other's affairs.

The pact was signed by Iraqi President Saddam Hussein and visiting King Fahd of Saudi Arabia at the end of a three-day state visit to Iraq.The two leaders signed two agreements to govern relations between Iraq and Saudi Arabia, its staunchest ally and biggest financial backer in the eight-year-long Persian Gulf war with non-Arab Iran before last year's August ceasefire.

Hussein described the agreements as reaffirming principles of cooperation between the two states and said he hoped they would gain wider acceptance among Arabs and Moslems and throughout the world.
