Zebari revealed the postponement after his meeting with an Iranian delegation in Baghdad, said IRNA.

The Iraqi top diplomat stressed that the postponement is due to technical reasons rather than political.

Officials from the three sides had been due to meet in Baghdad next Tuesday and are now trying to find a date later this month that suits everyone, it reported.
