Iraq, Iran and Turkey signed a joint agreement on the closure of border crossings in the Kurdistan region, a deputy close to Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said Sunday. The agreement includes the entry of Turkish goods across the Iranian border and the creation of a joint force to maintain the common border.
"A tripartite agreement was reached between Turkey, Iran and Iraq on maintaining common borders with those countries with a federal power," Jaafar said in a statement.
He added that "Iraq avoids the military clash at the moment, but it seeks to increase economic pressure by preventing the entry of Turkish and Iranian goods to Kurdistan to force him to hand over the border crossings of the federal government."
"Turkey will enter all goods across the Iranian border to Iraq to avoid the transit of cargo from the port of Ibrahim al-Khalil," Jaafar said, adding that "Iraq is seeking to create a special force to hold the common border through joint maneuvers with Iran and Turkey." Ending / 25 d
