Iraq’s Defense Minister Lieutenant General Juma Anad Saadoun Khattab is scheduled to visit Tehran for talks with Iranian officials on strengthening military cooperation between the two countries.
Heading a high-ranking delegation of military commanders, Anad will arrive in the Iranian capital on Saturday upon an official invitation by Iran’s Defense Minister Brigadier General Amir Hatami.
During his stay in Tehran, the Iraqi defense chief will hold meetings with his Iranian counterpart and other senior Iranian political and military officials.
In a video call with the Iraqi defense minister in May, Hatami had said Iran was willing to forge a strategic partnership with Iraq and turn bilateral ties into a “successful model for cooperation.”
