(Iraq Now News)- ERBIL (Kurdistan 24) – A commander in the Peshmerga forces says there are international efforts to reopen a road linking the Kurdistan Region capital of Erbil with the province of Kirkuk, a path that has been closed for nearly nine months.

Kamal Kirkuki, the Commander of the Peshmerga forces, told Kurdistan 24 on Wednesday that American and British military officials had expressed their concerns about the ongoing closure of the Kirkuk-Erbil road.

“The Americans and British agree with us on the need to open the road between Erbil and Kirkuk.

We have no objection to that, but the ball is in Baghdad’s court,” he said.

Kirkuki added that although a British delegation has promised to solve this problem soon and to open the road, there has been no timetable set for this resolution.
