AMMAN - The foreign ministers of Syria and Iraq discussed ways to tackle militant groups that have threatened the security of their countries, Syrian state television said on Tuesday, citing a news conference at Damascus airport.

Iraq's Foreign Minister Ibrahim al-Jaafari is visiting Damascus on Tuesday and will also meet Syrian President Bashar Assad, Jaafari's office said.

The discussions "focused on the fight against terrorism and common dangers that threaten our countries," Syrian state television said, citing the meeting.

"Terrorism is not just a danger that faces both countries but one that will affect all countries if there is not cooperation," Jaafari said, according to the channel.
