Iran to discuss Iraq security with U.S. on Monday
A senior Iranian diplomat said that Tehran would hold meeting with the United States over the Iraq security issue in Baghdad on Monday, the state media reported.

"Based on the agreement, the two sides would exchange ideas over details of a trilateral security committee on Monday," Iran's Ambassador to Iraq Hassan Kazemi Qomi, was quoted as saying by the official IRNA news agency.

"Iranian, Iraqi and U.S. representatives would join the conference to talk about composition and agenda of the security committee ... the discussion would be held at expert level," he added.

But the report failed to mention which officials from the Iran side would attend the meeting.

On July 24, U.S. and Iranian ambassadors to Iraq met in Baghdad and held the second round of talks over Iraq, during which the two sides decided to set up a joint subcommittee to "coordinate and lobby on the establishment of stability and security" there.

The two ambassadors made their first round of talks on May 28 in Baghdad in an effort to find solutions for Iraqi security problems. However, their first meeting ended without substantial achievements.
