Zarif’s visit will improve Erbil-Baghdad ties: PUK official tells Kurdpress
A member of Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) political office said the Iranian Foreign Minister Muhammad Javad Zarif’s recent tour in Iraq will improve ties between Erbil and Baghdad governments.

Zarif arrived in Baghdad on Sunday and after meeting different officials in Baghdad, Najaf and Karbala he went to the northern region of Kurdistan yesterday and met PUK leader and former Iraqi President Jalal Talabani, Kurdistan Region President Massoud Barzani and Gorran (Change Movement) Nawshirwan Mustafa.

The PUK official Sa’adi Ahmad Pira told Kurdpress that the visit was not to settle differences and solve disputes between Erbil and Baghdad but it was positive on the whole and can mend relation between the two governments in Iraq.

He went on to say that talks are continuing between Baghdad and Erbil and Zarif’s visit will undoubtedly leave a good impact on the relation between the two Iraq sides.
