Syrian Foreign Minister in Baghdad

In a sign of Syria's new spirit of co-operation with the outside world, Syria's Foreign Minister Walid Mouallim is in Baghdad.

He met Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari, who showed the Iraqi government isn't as hostile to Syria as some would like to believe.

He's been talking about ties between the two countries, long delayed plans to open an embassy there, and the violence in Iraq. He condemned terrorism in the country, and urged Iraqis to "cling to their unity".

Mouallim wants a timetable for a US withdrawal.
