Iraq: Iran re-opens border crossings with Iraq-Kurdistan region

Hundreds of trucks crossed the Parviz Khan Border crossing with the Iraqi Kurdistan region in Sulaymaniyah on Wednesday, after Baghdad requested it’s re-opening. Iran re-opened two crossings with the Iraqi Kurdistan region, Tamarchin and Parviz Khan, on Tuesday after being closed for over two months following tensions between the Iraqi government and the Erbil-based Kurdish regional government... Еще after the Kurdish referendum. Truck drivers that had been unable to work for weeks, expressed their optimism over the gesture, «two months ago the crossing was closed and we were jobless, thank goodness the crossing is re-opened now and we can go forth as usual.» For Varshad Abbas, a truck driver from Kermanshah in Iran, this constitutes a «good gesture» from Iran’s side and is linked with the wave of demonstrations that has shook Iran over the past days.
