ERBIL — Chief of Turkey’s National Intelligence Organization (MiT), Hakan Fidan, traveled to Kurdistan Region on Tuesday, September 12 to discuss with the Kurdish officials the issue of the two MiT personnel abducted by Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) in Sulaymaniyah.

MIT director’s visit, according to sources, was aimed at releasing the two Turkish personnel captured by PKK in Dukan district, northern Sulaymaniyah Province and taken to Qandil, where PKK’s main headquarters are located.

The Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK)’s relations with Turkey was deteriorating after PKK abducted the Turkish nationals, which later led to the expulsion of the PUK representative from Ankara.

The PUK representative said in a press conference after he arrived back in Kurdistan Region that the PKK’s movements within the territories under PUK’s control have affected the relations between Turkey and PUK.
