Iran's President Hassan Rouhani is set to pay an official visit to Iraq on March 11 to boost bilateral ties between the two neighbors. A high-ranking delegation is set to accompany the president.

The visit is eagerly anticipated by Iraq's government and people. The two countries share many commonalities and there is much understanding between them, and the visit by Iran's president would be a turning point in their relations since a new cabinet has come into office in Iraq, IRNA reported.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and his deputy, Seyyed Abbas Araqchi, as well as Minster of Petroleum Bijan Zangeneh and Central Bank Governor Abdoldnaser Hemmati, have all - in their recent trips to Iraq - made preparations for Rouhani's upcoming visit.
