“The leaders discuss and agree on the frameworks and guidelines, and these things are translated on the ground later,” he explained, noting that “Barzani’s visit has eroded the ice between Baghdad and Erbil, and contributed to addressing major issues in the process The results of which will appear in the foreseeable future, after the completion of the ministerial cabins, including the principles of partnership in decision-making, compatibility in legislation and the balance of components in federal state institutions. ”
