BAGHDAD: International peace envoy Lakhdar Brahimi landed in Baghdad on Monday for talks with Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki over the ongoing conflict in Syria, an AFP photographer at the airport said.

The veteran troubleshooter arrived from Tehran, the latest stop on his second regional tour aimed at finding a solution to the 19-month conflict in Syria after Damascus rejected a UN call to implement a unilateral ceasefire.

He met with officials in Saudi Arabia and Turkey last week, ahead of his visit to Iran.

Brahimi called earlier on Monday for a temporary ceasefire in Syria during the four-day Eid al-Adha Muslim holiday later this month.
