Iran PressMiddle East: The Iraqi compensation file and the postponement of its payment will be at the heart of the talks," media outlets in Iraq said.

The visit to Iraq is the first by a high-profile Gulf official since the formation of Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadzemi's government on May 7.
