Iran foreign minister makes historic visit to Iraq
Iran's foreign minister arrived in Baghdad for talks with senior Iraqi officials on Tuesday, marking the highest-level visit by an official from Iran to its Mideast neighbor since Saddam Huseein's fall.
Kamal Kharrazi arrived in Iraq two days after Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice paid a surprise visit to support the war-ravaged country's political process.
A spokesman for Prime Minister Ibrahim al-Jaafari, Laith Kuba, said the Iranian envoy was scheduled to hold talks with al-Jaafari and Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari, a Kurd.
