Syria confirms it will attend meeting with US

Syria says it will attend a mid-March meeting with US officials in Iraq.

It is the first time top level officials from both countries have talked for more than two years.

"Talking with the United States about Iraq is a partial step in the right direction. All the problems in the region are interlinked," said a Syrian Foreign Ministry official, mirroring comments by the US yesterday.

Iraq says this month's meeting will be an ice-breaking event.

In April, there will be a ministerial gathering - Syria says it's too early to decide whether they will attend.
