Iraqi Prime Minister, Mohammed Shia Al-Sudani, will travel to Moscow to meet with Russian President, Vladimir Putin, for a two-day visit on 10-11 October, a government source and another person familiar with the matter told Reuters.

Sudani will depart Iraq on 9 October, meeting with Putin on 10 October  and will hold work meetings on 11 October, the government source said.

Iraqi state media, last month, said Sudani would travel to Moscow to discuss cooperation between the two countries in the economic and political fields.
