A state­ment by the Board reads that a meet­ing was held with the French Con­sul in Er­bil at which the two sides brain­stormed how to go about pro­mot­ing the tourism sec­tor. One of the ideas they came up with was fa­cil­i­tat­ing travel be­tween the two coun­tries.

At the meet­ing, the French Con­sul claimed his govern­ment was work­ing on a mech­a­nism to pro­vide French visas to Kur­dish trav­el­ers via a com­pany.

In ad­di­tion to this, the state­ment men­tioned that the two par­ties are plan­ning to launch di­rect flights be­tween Er­bil and Paris.
