CHP leader will start his visit from Iraqi capital of Baghdad, said a written statement released by CHP's press office.

Kilicdaroglu will be accompanied by several executives of his party Faruk Logoglu, Gursel Tekin, Erdogan Toprak, and some businessmen.

Limited number of journalists will be following Kilicdaroglu's visit because of “serious security risk” issued by Turkish Foreign Ministry, according to the CHP's press office.
