WAAR-DUHOK:

Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) Prime Minister Nechirvan Barzani on Saturday met with his Iraqi counterpart Haider al-Abadi in Baghdad, a source from Barzani’s office said.

It is the first meeting between both Prime Ministers since relations between Erbil and Baghdad considerably deteriorated following the Kurdistan Region’s Sep.

25 independence referendum.

Both sides discussed outstanding issues between Erbil and Baghdad, the source told reporters.

The KRG and the Iraqi government have been locked in ongoing disputes since the referendum.

The historic vote received sweeping support for secession from Iraq, but Baghdad refused to recognize the results and instead responded by imposing collective punitive measures against Kurdistan, including the use of military force in disputed areas.
