BAGHDAD — Iran's new foreign minister is in Baghad in an attempt to cement ties with the new Iraqi government.

The visit Wednesday is the first by Ali Akbar Salehi or any Iranian official since Iraq's new government was sworn in after about nine months of political wrangling following March elections.

The two Shiite-dominated countries fought a brutal eight-year war in the 1980s that left hundreds of thousands of people dead on both sides.
