KRG Prime Minister Nechirvan Barzani described relations with Iran as generally good, adding they are glad a flight resumption between the Kurdistan Region and Tehran is in the works.
The PM also welcomed steps that would see regional countries not use chemical weapons steps are forward, not backward.
“We are happy with the restart of flights between Tehran, Erbil and Sulaimani.
This is a very good thing.
We are happy with this step.
Relations between us and Tehran are good.
Generally our relations with neighboring countries are good.
We are happy with this,” Nechirvan Barzani, KRG’s prime minister, told journalists a press conference on Tuesday.
The response was to a question asking if non-stop flights would resume between the Kurdistan Region and Tehran.
Iran was the first country to take measures against KRG following the independence referendum.
It closed its border crossings with the KRG, and like Turkey, it complied with Baghdad’s international flight ban on the Kurdistan Region.“We hope that a successful election will be held for all of Iraq removed from violence,” Barzani hoped.
