"The president of Iraq will pay an official visit to Damascus in the coming days," the source said.
Iraqi Foreign Minister Ibrahim Jaafari has visited Damascus for talks with the Syrian leadership, including President Bashar Assad.
The Syrian civil war has been raging since 2011, with government troops fighting against numerous armed opposition and terrorist organizations.
The Russian Aerospace Forces have been supporting the Syrian government forces in their fight against the terrorists since 2015 at the request of Syrian President Bashar Assad. In late 2017, a victory over the Daesh terrorist group was announced in Syria, but some areas of the country continue to be liberated from militants.
Daesh (ISIL/ISIS/IS/Islamic State) is a terrorist organisation banned in Russia.
