Iran to Mediate Between Erbil and Baghdad: Envoy

Iranian Ambassador to Iraq, Iraj Masjedi, said on Saturday that Tehran will help the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) and Iraq return to talks and find a solution to their prolonged disputes.

Speaking to reporters from Tehran, Majedi stated that the Islamic Republic of Iran hopes to end the Erbil-Baghdad tensions in a direction that serves the interests of both.

Touching on the relations between Erbil and Tehran, the ambassador described them as “strong and historical”.

Since the independence referendum in Kurdistan Region last September, the political relations between Erbil and Baghdad have faced difficulties, with the Kurds expressing willingness to resolve their disputes through peaceful dialogue while Baghdad is yet to take a step forward.
