Conditions ripe for Iran trade with Iraqi Kurdistan

IRNA – The necessary security has been provided in Iraqi Kurdistan Region after the September's futile referendum there, so the Iranian business persons can be present in the Iraqi northern region again, an Iranian official said on Tuesday.

By the end of the conflict in the northern parts of Iraq, the Kurds are now trying to rectify their mistake, Yahya Al-Eshaq, chairman of Iran-Iraq Chamber of Commerce.

'Our borders with Iraqi Kurdistan are re-opening one by one, and the situation is being returned to normal' the official said.

An independence referendum was approved by Iraq's local Kurdistan parliament despite harsh oppositions from the federal government in Baghdad, and warnings from neighboring countries on the repercussions. Less than a month later, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi declared that the region's September 25 referendum was 'history.'
