SULAIMANI — Kurdistan Region’s President Nechirvan Barzani has arrived in Baghdad on Thursday (June 20) to meet senior Iraqi officials.

NRT Digital Media Omed Mohammed said Barzani is expected to meet with Iraqi Prime Minister Adil Abdul Mahdi to discuss the relations between Erbil and Baghdad and the latest development in the region.

A source who spoke under condition of anonymity told NRT Digital Media that Barzani would discuss the issues between Erbil and Baghdad related to oil and the 50-year agreement between the Kurdistan Region and Turkey.

This is the first visit of Barzani to Baghdad since his election as President of Kurdistan Region last month.
