Iraqi Minister of Culture to visit Iran
Iraqi Culture Minister Hamad Yussef Hammadi is due to visit Iran Thursday on a five-day trip, the latest sign of a thaw in relations between the once bitter foes, an official Iranian source said Wednesday.
Hammadi, who was invited by his Iranian counterpart Ahmad Masjed-Jamei, will visit the holy Shiite city of Mashaad in the northeast and Isfahan in central Iran, according to AFP.
In the meantime, Iranian Foreign Minister Kamal Kharazi met Tuesday in Khartoum with Iraq's top diplomat Naji Sabri on the sidelines of a summit of the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC). (Albawaba.com)
