A Iraqi top military delegation arrived in Iran's capital Tehran on Wednesday for exchange of views on military and defense cooperation.

The delegation is led by the Iraqi army Chief of Staff Lieutenant-General Othman al-Ghanemi.

The Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said earlier on Wednesday that Iraq's military cooperation with Iran and Turkey is aimed at protecting regional security.

The trip comes against a backdrop of an independence vote in Iraq's Kurdistan region held on Monday, which has met with strong criticism of both Baghdad and Tehran.
