Tehran Mayor Pirouz Hanachi arrived in Baghdad on Wednesday evening upon an official invitation from his Iraqi counterpart to exchange views for deepening cooperation in various areas, IRNA reported on Saturday.

Tehran Municipality has showed its readiness for restoring historical monuments in Iraq, particularly Ivan Madaen (Taq Kasra) in collaboration with Iranian companies, which was welcomed by Baghdad, the report added.

"Skills of Iranian experts in the arena of restoring Iraq's historical and ancient monuments were discussed in various meetings with Iraqi officials, and it was decided to follow up on future meetings and negotiations," IRNA quoted Hanachi as saying.
