Iranian Foreign Minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, arrived in Najaf on Tuesday.

The Minister will visit the holy shrine of Imam Ali and then heads to Baghdad.

His visit aims at holding talks with his Iraqi counterpart Ibrahim Jafari and Prime Minister Heydar al-Ebadi, IRNA reports.

Zarif went to Geneva on Saturday to confer with his American counterpart on ways of developing a final nuclear deal and settling remaining points of difference on Iran’s nuclear program.

His deputy Abbas Araqchi too will arrive in Vienna tomorrow for talks with the head of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Yukia Amano.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif met his Iraqi counterpart Ibrahim al-Jaafari in Tehran on December 7, 2014, ahead of a conference with their Syrian counterpart on combating extremism.
