TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - “During recent visit of KRG’s Prime Minister Nechirvan Barzani to Iran, Iranian officials announced that they are ready to help for close relation between Erbil and Iraq in case the two sides act under the Iraqi constitution,” he said.
He said that planning is underway for visit of an Iranian delegation to Erbil.
The Islamic Republic of Iran is playing a positive role in the Middle East and this role is considerable, he said, adding Iran and the KRG have always had friendly ties. The KRG referendum damaged the ties for a while but then the two sides made efforts to resolve problems and boost bilateral ties, he noted.
He said that Iran can play an effective role in mediation between Erbil and Baghdad since the two sides trust Iran.
