Iran's acting Foreign Minister Ali- Akbar Salehi arrived here Wednesday on an official visit to Baghdad to meet with Iraqi senior officials to congratulate the new government and discuss means to boost bilateral ties.

Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki received Salehi in his office and the two discussed bilateral ties and means to enhance cooperation, as well as the situation in the region, Maliki's office said in a statement.

"Maliki stressed that Iraq's relations with the neighboring countries should be built on mutual respect and non-interference in internal affairs," the statement said.

Later in the day, Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar al-Zebari said that he discussed with his Iranian counterpart several issues, including holding talks to solve pending issues such as the demarcation of border line between the two countries and the departure of an Iranian opposition group named Mujahdeen Khalq Organization (MKO).
