The co-leader of Syria pro-Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD), Salih Muslim was due to arrive in Erbil late on Saturday, Rudaw website said in a report.

The report said Muslim is planned to meet Diyarbakir Deputy Layla Zana and the city’s Mayor Osman Baydemir. The two Turkey Kurdish official entered Erbil some days ago to intervene between PYD and Kurditsan Region President Massoud Barzani.

The visit aims to settle differences between PYD and Barzani-affiliated Syrian Kurds Patriotic Council.

Rudaw had earlier had quoted Barzani office chief Foad Hussein as saying that Muslim will visit the region.

The visit comes months after Erbil did not allow Muslim to go to Europe through the region, something that deepened tensions between the two sides.
