(Iraq Now News)- ERBIL (Kurdistan 24) – The leader of the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP), and former President of the Kurdistan Region, Masoud Barzani, and an accompanying military delegation on Saturday visited the outskirts of the town of Perde (Altun Kupri) north of Kirkuk.

Barzani’s visit follows reports that Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi has called on his forces to reopen a strategic road between Erbil and Kirkuk.

Iraqi Shafaq news agency said the Iraqi Prime Minister ordered the reopening of the road within the next three days.

Kurdish officials, however, say they have yet to meet with Iraqi officials to discuss the matter.
