Iraqi president to visit China to meet top leaders

Iraqi President Jalal Talabani will visit China later this month for meetings with top officials, the Foreign Ministry announced Thursday.

The two sides were expected to discuss bilateral relations and "international and regional issues of common interest," ministry spokesman Qin Gang said at a regular news conference. They will sign cooperation agreements related to education and health.
