Iranian Foreign Minister to Visit Baghdad Thursday
Iranian Foreign Minister, Kamal Kharazi, will go to Baghdad Thursday, "possibly by plane", for the first visit to Iraq by an Iranian foreign minister since the Islamic revolution of 1979, a ministry official said Tuesday.
"Mr. Kharazi, leading an Iranian delegation, will go to Baghdad on Thursday for a two-day visit to Iraq," the official told AFP.
The official said Kharazi could fly to Baghdad, joining a string of Arab and other states which have tested a UN embargo on flights in recent weeks to sanctions-hit Iraq.
