BAGHDAD (AP) — Iran's new foreign minister has arrived in neighboring Iraq on his first trip abroad since taking office.
Mohammad Javad Zarif landed at Baghdad airport on Sunday and was met by his Iraqi counterpart, Hoshyar Zebari. He is also meeting Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki.
The official Iranian news agency IRNA quoted Zarif as saying that Tehran as "joint concerns with our Iraqi brothers on war-waging in the region." That is an apparent reference to U.S.-led plans for strikes on Iran's ally Syria.
Iran and Iraq fought a ruinous war from 1980 to 1988. The two countries have bolstered ties considerably since the 2003 U.S.-led invasion that ousted Saddam Hussein.
