Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian

Baghdad, IRNA – Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian arrived in the Iraqi capital on Saturday to take part in the Baghdad Conference for Cooperation and Partnership.

Upon arrival, Amir-Abdollahian was welcomed by his Iraqi counterpart Fuad Hussein, Iran's Ambassador to Baghdad Iraj Masjedi, and a number of Iraqi officials.

Iraq is Amir-Abdollahian's first foreign flight since he has been appointed as foreign minister recently.

Prior to his visit to Iraq, Amir-Abdollahian had said that Tehran welcomes Iraqi officials' any initiative to be undertaken with participation of regional states.

Speaking about Baghdad regional summit slated for August 28, the foreign minister had said that Iran believed that Syria as an important neighbor to Iraq should have been invited to the summit.

He went on to say that Iran had consultations and communications with Syria on regional security and sustainable development.

Tehran will have direct consultation with Damascus about Baghdad summit and regional countries' important role, Amir-Abdollahian noted.

In a related development, Iraqi Foreign Minister Fuad Hussein had already said that the issue of Syria is controversial and not in the hand of Iraq.

He has also said that Iraq has good ties with Syria and has never cut its diplomatic ties with the neighbor.

Iraq has announced that aim behind holding Baghdad summit is decreasing tension in the region, developing economic relations, and solving dispute among Iraq's neighboring states.
