Barzani Welcomes Relations with Israel

Al-Taakhi is issued daily by the Kurdistan Democratic Party, led by Masood Barzani.

Kurdistan regional government president Masood Barzani said Sunni Arabs' participation in the elections will help achieve national unity, through which Iraq can eliminate its complicated and serious problems. He also denied that Israeli individuals were at Erbil's airport but added that it is not a crime to have relations with Israel. “Whenever the Iraqi government decides to normalize relations with Israel, we will open an Israeli consulate in Erbil,” he affirmed.
