Iraq gears up for Arab League summit

Syria is expected to be high on the agenda for conference that Baghdad last hosted in 1990 after invading Kuwait.

    Syria is going to be at the top of the agenda during an Arab League summit in Baghdad later this month. 

    It will be the first meeting of Arab foreign ministers in Iraq since 1990 - just after Saddam Hussein invaded Kuwait.
