Abdullah said the delegation explained the two parties intend to solve issues in the interest of Kurds and Iraqis through dialogue.

“Abadi has expressed readiness to tackle the issues between Erbil and Baghdad,” he told reporters following the meeting.

The PUK-Gorran delegation established on Thursday (June 23) set off for Baghdad on Saturday to hold meetings with representatives from Iraqi political parties and foreign embassies.

The delegation includes six PUK-Gorran members of the Iraqi parliament, three from each party.

The joint PUK-Gorran bloc will become the third largest faction and the largest Kurdish faction in the Iraqi Parliament. It will become the largest faction in Kurdistan’s Parliament.

The MPs are aiming to generate support among Iraqi political parties and international representatives, as well as other Kurdish parties, to reenergize talks within the assembly and between the central government and Erbil.
