Iraq has sent invitations to neighboring countries, including US rivals Iran and Syria, to attend a meeting in Baghdad next month that will mainly discuss the security situation in the country, a Foreign Ministry official said Thursday. The official, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to disclose the information to the media, said the meeting would be the tenth held by Iraq's neighbors but the first to take place in the Iraqi capital. The last such meeting was held in July in Iran. The invitation includes Iraq's neighbors Jordan, Kuwait, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Syria, he said. Also invited were Egypt, Bahrain, the Arab League, Organization of Islamic Conference and the United Nations, the official said.
