SULAIMANI — Spokesperson of the Haji Omaran border crossing Sirwan Hussein said on Tuesday (May 26) that the border crossing will be open on Wednesday but only for trade and commerce.

The spokesperson said that trade will be conducted under safety measures.

“According to the decisions of the interior ministry the border crossings will remain closed until June 1 and after that the government will decide based on the situation,” Hussein said.

The Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) closed all border crossing points in Kurdistan Region since February 13 due to the coronavirus outbreak in neighboring countries.
