Ar­me­nia to open con­sulate gen­eral in Er­bil

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

Ar­me­nian Am­bas­sador to Iraq Karen Grigoryan vis­ited Er­bil last week and met with the Kur­dis­tan Re­gional Gov­ern­ment’s (KRG) Prime Min­is­ter Nechir­van Barzani.

The visit was aimed at dis­cussing ways to boost bi­lat­eral re­la­tions be­tween Ar­me­nia and Kur­dis­tan Re­gion.

Am­bas­sador Grigoryan told PM Barzani that his coun­try is plan­ning to open a con­sulate gen­eral in Er­bil in June this year.

More­over, as an­other way to boost ties, Er­bil will be con­nected to Yerivan, the Ar­me­nian cap­i­tal, via two di­rect flights per week, start­ing from end of this month.

Both par­ties talked about the his­tor­i­cal re­la­tions be­tween Ar­me­ni­ans and Kurds and the cul­tural similarities the two na­tions.

PM Barzani ap­praised the steps by the Ar­me­nian gov­ern­ment and re­it­er­ated KRG’s full sup­port in im­ple­ment­ing their plans to open the con­sulate gen­eral.

“Kur­dis­tan Re­gion will wel­come Ar­me­nian in­vestors and busi­ness­men to Kur­dis­tan Re­gion and of­fer them all sup­port and fa­cil­i­ta­tions they will need,” PM Barzani told Am­bas­sador Grigoryan.
