Tehran Times - - POLITICS -

TEHRAN — The Iraqi Kur­dis­tan en­voy to Iran, Nazem Dabaq, said on Mon­day that re­la­tions be­tween Tehran and the Kur­dis­tan re­gion are in sus­pen­sion.

Dabaq said re­la­tions would be im­proved af­ter a pos­si­ble agree­ment be­tween Er­bil and Bagh­dad, Tas­nim news agency re­ported.

Iraq’s semi-au­ton­o­mous Kur­dis­tan Re­gional Govern­ment held an in­de­pen­dence ref­er­en­dum on Septem­ber 25 af­ter its pres­i­dent Ma­soud Barzani turned a cold shoul­der to in­ter­na­tional calls against the vote.

Fol­low­ing the vote, which was de­scribed as un­con­sti­tu­tional by the Iraqi cen­tral govern­ment, Iran sev­ered its ties with Kur­dis­tan.
