According to a statement released by the PUK media office, Talabani is due to depart from Sulaimani and will stay in Iran for a few days. The visit is at the invitation of Iranian officials.
The Kurdistan Regional Government’s (KRG) representative in Tehran, Nazim Dabagh, told Rudaw he was “unaware that Mam Jalal will arrive in the Islamic Republic of Iran on a visit next week.”
While Talabani remains the official head of PUK, he has largely disappeared from the country's political scene since suffering a stroke in December 2012.
