Syrian Foreign Minister Faisal Al-Mokdad is set to visit the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, on Saturday, Syria’s Al-Watan newspaper said on Thursday.
Quoting unnamed sources, the paper said that during his visit the Minister will meet with Iraqi officials including Iraqi President Abdul Latif Rashid, Prime Minister Mohamed Al-Sudani, his counterpart Fouad Hussein and Parliament Speaker Mohamed Halbusi.
Discussions will reportedly focus on promoting bilateral relations between the two countries, and the latest developments in the region.
Mokdad’s visit to Iraq comes amid “positive” developments in the region following the Arab League summit in Jeddah.
The Arab League member states agreed to welcome Syria back into the Arab fold earlier in May after a 12-year suspension.
Syrian President Bashar Assad attended the summit.
