BAGHDAD / Aswat al-Iraq: The Iranian ambassador in Baghdad unveiled the postponement of the Iranian president's visit to Baghdad to next month.
"Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is scheduled to travel to Baghdad next Iranian month (November 21-December 20) to meet and confer with high-ranking Iraqi officials on bilateral ties and cooperation," the diplomat said.
"President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will travel to Baghdad next month to meet Iraqi officials and hold talks with them on bilateral ties," Iranian Ambassador to Baghdad Hassan Danayeefar told Fares news agency FNA.
Earlier reports said President Ahmadinejad was slated to visit the Iraqi capital in early November in a bid to take part in the 2nd International Conference on the Global Fight against Terrorism which was postponed.
Asked about holding of a conference on global fight against terrorism in Baghdad, the Iranian ambassador said that the Iraqi officials have not set an exact date for the conference yet.
The First International Conference on Global Fight against Terrorism was held here in Tehran on June 25, 2011 with several high-ranking officials and international figures in attendance.
The event brought together senior officials from at least 60 countries, and representatives from several international organizations, including the UN.
Iran and Iraq have enjoyed growing ties ever since the overthrow of the former Iraqi dictator, Saddam Hussein, in 2003.
Both sides are working on a series of plans to take wide strides in expanding their ties.
