Kurds try to make Kele an in­ter­na­tional bor­der point

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

A del­e­ga­tion from the Kur­dis­tan Par­lia­ment vis­ited Bagh­dad and or­ga­nized a num­ber of meet­ings there. The del­e­ga­tion, which con­sisted of rep­re­sen­ta­tives from dif­fer­ent blocs of the par­lia­ment, was mainly try­ing to con- vince the Iraqi au­thor­i­ties to rec­og­nize Kele bor­der point with Iran in Pish­dar area, as an in­ter­na­tional bor­der cross­ing.

They met with the Iraqi Pres­i­dent, Deputy Par­lia­ment Speaker and a num­ber of min­is­ters in Bagh- dad.

Par­lia­ment Mem­ber Qadir Raz­gayee, who was a mem­ber of the del­e­ga­tion, says they have met with a num­ber of au­thor­i­ties in Bagh­dad, and all of them have re­it­er­ated their sup­port for the de­mands of the del­e­ga­tion.

MP Raz­gayee says the Iraqi In­te­rior Min­is­ter has sug­gested that the Kur­dis­tan Re­gion’s In­te­rior Min­is­ter sends them an of­fi­cial re­quest for the recog­ni­tion of the Kele bor­der point, so that they can start work- ing on the re­quest.

The del­e­ga­tion were also plan­ning to meet the trade min­is­ter in Bagh­dad, how­ever, the min­is­ter was out of town for a visit to Kur­dis­tan Re­gion.

Kele bor­der point is lo­cated on the Kur­dish- Ira­nian bor­der in Pish­dar Dis­trict. If Kele be­comes an in­ter­na­tional bor­der point, it would have pos­i­tive im­pact on the eco­nomic devel­op­ment of the Pish­dar and Ra­parin area.
