     KRG delegation to visit Baghdad

A high-ranking delegation from the Kurdistan Region, headed by Nechirvan Barzani, President of the Kurdistan Region, is scheduled to visit the Iraqi capital Baghdad on Tuesday.


“A delegation from the Kurdistan Region headed by Nechirvan Barzani, President of the Kurdistan Region, will visit the capital Baghdad today,” Member of the PUK Bloc in the Iraqi parliament, Shirwan Mirza told PUKmedia.


“The delegation will discuss efforts to form a new federal government headed by Mohammed Tawfiq Allawi with the political parties in the capital, Baghdad,” he added.


“I think that the Kurdish sides and other political parties have shown some flexibility in the matter of forming the new government, stressing that the Kurdish parties have shown good flexibility for the sake of Iraq’s interest and bypassing the current stage,” he explained.


The Iraqi President, Barham Salih appointed Mohammed Tawfiq Allawi to form the new Iraqi government earlier on February, after two months over the resignation of former PM Adil Abdul-Mahdi, where he submitted resignation last year's November, following mass protests that have gripped Iraq since October, with mostly young protesters demanding a change in the political system.
