President of Iraq Fuad Masoum is to visit Iran next week.
Iran's Ambassador to Baghdad Hassan Danaeifar said that several Iraqi cabinet ministers will accompany the president during his three-day visit, Iran's official IRNA news agency reported May 5.
Danaeifar held talks with President Masoum on May 5 morning to coordinate preparatory works for the visit at invitation of the Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.
The two sides discussed growing trend of bilateral relations in politico-economic and cultural fields.
Enhanced interaction and cooperation in the field of security and fight against terrorism had always been emphasized by leaders of the two governments.
Iran's First Vice-President Eshaq Jahangiri during his visit to Baghdad last February delivered invitation of President Rouhani to his Iraqi counterpart to pay a visit to Iran.
This is the first ever visit of President Masoum to Iran since he took office last summer.
