Iraqi deputy PM due in Tehran today  28.8.2004


TEHRAN (AFP) -- Iraq's interim Deputy Prime Minister Barham Saleh is expected to visit Iran today to prepare for an official visit to the Islamic republic by Prime Minister Iyad Allawi, the official Iranian news agency IRNA said Thursday.

The report said Saleh -- an ethnic Kurd from the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) -- had also discussed the visit with Iran's charge d'affaires in Iraq on Wednesday, and had promised that three IRNA journalists apparently detained there would be released before his trip.

IRNA's Baghdad bureau chief Mostafa Darban, and colleagues Mohammad Khafaji and Mohsen Madani went missing in Iraq on August 9. Tehran later said they had been detained by Iraqi police.

Iraqi Vice President Ibrahim al-Jafari made a surprise visit to Iran on Tuesday, at a time when both sides are trying to mend fences after a certain tension in the past two weeks.

No date has yet been set for a visit to Tehran by Allawi, who has been officially invited by Iran.
