ERBIL -Iraqi Turkmens reopen office after six years
 
Selim said that they were supported by Kurdish authorities in their initiatives for reopening of the office.

Iraqi Turkmen Front’s (ITC) representative office was reopened in Irbil after six years.

Aydin Maruf Selim, member of executive board of ITC, said that they attached a great importance to Irbil politically and culturally, stating that ITC was founded in Irbil in 1995.

The HQ of the ITC was moved to Kirkuk in 2003 with the U.S. occupation in Iraq and ITC’s Irbil office was closed due to domestic issues in 2005, he said.

During that period, relations with Iraq and the north of Iraq were not good, but the current relations were pleasing, he said.

Selim said that they were glad with ITC new administration’s decision on reopening of the office in Irbil, as there was a great number of Turkmens in the region.

Selim said that they were supported by Kurdish authorities in their initiatives for reopening of the office.

ITC supported relations between Turkey and Iraq, he said.

Selim said that Turkey could be an important guarantor between Turkmens and Kurds, stating that they attached a great importance to Turkey’s role in the region.
