2018/02/14 | 23:00

(Iraq Now News)- Kurdistan Region Government PM Nechirvan Barzani met Wednesday with US diplomatic delegation, the Baghdad Post reported. 

The meeting tackled the latest developments in the Baghdad-Erbil crisis and the talks he held in Davos with Iraqi PM Haider Abadi.

The relations between Iraq and KRG have been severed following the independence referendum held on September 25th.

The referendum gave an overwhelming YES for an independent Kurdistan. 

In early October, Iraqi armed forces allied with Iran-backed IMIS Militias invaded oil-rich Kirkuk.

Sectarian brutalities have been committed against civilians, particularly Sunnis.
