The joint Iran-Iraq business conference kicked off in the Iraqi capital of Baghdad on Monday afternoon, with the participation of Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif.

Heading an economic-political delegation, the Iranian top diplomat arrived in Baghdad yesterday afternoon on a 5-day visit to hold meetings with high-ranking Iraqi as well as Kurdish officials in Erbil and attend three trade meetings between the economic activists from the two countries’ private sectors in the Iraqi cities of Baghdad, Karbala and Sulaymaniyah.
