Baghdad, Nov 19: Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Moualem is expected to fly to Baghdad today, Iraqi Foreign Ministry officials said, for a rare visit by a senior Arab official since the fall of Saddam Hussein.

The US and Iraqi governments have complained that Damascus is failing to help stop Sunni Arab insurgents who they say are partly equipped and funded through Syria.

Britain has urged the US administration to seek Syrian help in Iraq, despite frosty relations between Washington and Damascus.
