Kurdistan Region: British Embassy in Iraq

ERBIL – The Foreign Secretary of Britain on a phone call urged Haider al-Abadi, the Iraqi PM, to halt the ban on the international airports in the Kurdistan Region.

According to a statement released by the British Embassy in Iraq, the Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson by telephone called on the Iraqi PM to make progressions on talks between Baghdad and Erbil and restart the international flights in the Kurdistan Region as soon as possible.

The British official additionally asserted his government’s commitment to support private sector’s development in Iraq.

Kurdistan Region on September 25th last year held a referendum to vote for independence, but the federal government of Iraq imposed an embargo on international flights to and from the Kurdistan Region as a punitive measure for holding the referendum.
