Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif visited the assassination site of slain commander Qassem Soleimani to pay his respects upon his arrival in Baghdad on Sunday, Iranian state media reported.
Zarif will meet with a number of senior Iraqi officials during his Sunday visit to the Iraqi capital, including Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi, President Barham Salih, and President of the Council of Representatives Mohamed al-Halbousi, Iran's semi-official Tasnim news agency said.
A video shared by Iran’s Arabic-language al-Alam TV showed Zarif visiting the assassination site of Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) commander Soleimani and Iraqi militia leader Abu Mahdi al-Mohandes to pay his respects near Baghdad airport.
The killing of Soleimani and al-Mohandes will be among topics of discussion with Iraqi officials, the semi-official ISNA news agency cited Zarif as saying.
Zarif will also visit Iraqi Kurdistan and meet with Kurdish officials, Tasnim said.
