Top KRG Statesmen Expected

The president and prime minister of Iraq’s Kurdistan Regional Government, Masoud Barzani and Nechervan Idris Barzani respectively, are scheduled to pay an official visit to Tehran this week, an Iranian Foreign Ministry source said.
The source told Alwaght news website that the two statesmen of Iraq’s semi-autonomous Kurdistan region will arrive in Tehran on Monday to hold talks with Iranian officials on bilateral ties in political, economic and security areas as well as the fight against terrorism.
Efforts made by Iran and Iraq to counter terrorist groups, especially the self-styled Islamic State terrorist group, and the battle for liberation of the northern Iraqi city of Mosul from the terrorists will also be discussed during the meetings, the source added.
On Thursday, Masoud Barzani met Iraq’s Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi in Baghdad during which the two sides reached consensus to settle disagreements and join forces for the upcoming operation to liberate Mosul.
The northern and western parts of Iraq have witnessed gruesome violence ever since IS terrorists mounted an offensive in June 2014. The Iraqi Army and their allies have been engaged in joint operations to retake militant-held areas.
