China's foreign minister on rare visit to Iraq
BAGHDAD (AFP) - Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi arrived in Iraq on Sunday in the first such visit since before the 2003 US-led invasion, the foreign ministry said.
It is "the first visit to Baghdad by a high-ranking Chinese official since 2003," the ministry said in a statement on its website.
Mr Wang and senior officials will discuss "developing bilateral relations and regional and international issues", the statement said.
Oil is likely to be on the agenda.
