ERBIL — A senior Kurdistan Region delegation will soon be formed for talks with Baghdad over a range of topics, including the forthcoming referendum on Kurdistan’s secession from Iraq and other outstanding issues between the sides.

Ashwaq Jaf, a Kurdish member of the Iraqi parliament, told BasNews a senior delegation would be formed in the near future for negotiations with Baghdad about the September vote on independence and a number of issues including financial, geographical and border issues.

The Kurdistan Region’s delegation will consist of senior members of Kurdistan Region’s parties, she noted.

She added that Kurdistan Region’s secession from Iraq has been already mentioned in a meeting with the Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi who has said “I know what Kurdistan Region’s people are seeking — they’re seeking independence.”

Kurdistan Region has planned to hold a plebiscite on independence on September 25th of this year.
