Proper way to send (POST) xml with guzzle 6

I want to perform a post with guzzle sending an xml file. I did not find an example.

What I ‘ve done so far is :

$xml2=simplexml_load_string($xml) or die("Error: Cannot create object");
use    GuzzleHttpClient;
use GuzzleHttpPsr7Request;
$client = new Client();
$request = new Request('POST', $uri, [ 'body'=>$xml]);
$response = $client->send($request);
//$code = $response->getStatusCode(); // 200
//$reason = $response->getReasonPhrase(); // OK
 echo $response->getBody();

No matter what I try I get back error -1 which means that xml is not valid. XML that I send passes online validation though and is valid %100

Please help.



After some experiments, I have figured it out. Here is my solution in case someone reaches a dead end.

$request = new Request(
    ['Content-Type' => 'text/xml; charset=UTF8'],
