Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri Maliki is due to arrive in Iran for talks which are expected to concentrate mainly on security issues.
Mr Maliki is visiting Iran at a time of increasing domestic and international pressure on his government.
Co-operation on security is expected to be top of the agenda.
Baghdad has expressed hope that the ongoing talks between Washington and Tehran about Iraqi security could be held at a higher level, and the Iranian and Iraqi delegations may well discuss the next step in that dialogue.
