Iraqi Foreign Minister Ibrahim al-Jaafari arrived in Damascus Sunday on a two-day official visit for Syria to hold talks on the latest regional developments, Al Sumariya News reported.

Iraqi Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ahmed Mahjoub said the Iraqi top diplomat will meet with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and senior officials for talks on the latest security and political developments in the region and bilateral relations.

Earlier in the month, Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Muallem extended an invitation to his Iraqi counterpart to visit Damascus.

The latest visit by the Iraqi FM to Damascus was in 2015 as he held talks with Syrian officials on the terrorism file and a set of issues of common interest.
