Iraq's Customs Procedures With the KRG to be Unified

Deal expected to be finalised following further discussion between Baghdad and Erbil

Iraq prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi has revealed that |Baghdad will unify its customs procedures with Kurdistan.

The move, which marks a further warming of ties following the resumption of Kirkuk oil exports, is set to be implemented once a final agreement between Baghdad and Erbil is reached.

Once implemented, the unification will increase the ease of transport for imported goods with the removal of custom tariffs which has caused difficulties for traders.

Further talks are expected this week with KRG leader Masoud Barzani making his first visit to Baghdad since the failed Kurdish independence referendum in September 2017.
