TEHRAN, Feb. 28 (MNA) – An Iraqi delegation headed by the governor of Sulaymaniyah traveled to Marivan to hold talks with the secretary of the Supreme Council of Free Trade, Industrial and Special Economic Zones and the governor of Kurdistan.

A delegation from the Iraqi Kurdistan region headed by the governor of  Sulaymaniyah Heval Abubakir arrived in the western Iranian city of Marivan on Monday to meet with Iranian economic officials including the secretary of the Supreme Council of Free and Special Economic Zones, Saeed Mohammad who is visiting the western Iranian province of Kordestan. 

The Iraqi delegation entered Iran after crossing the iBashmaq international border crossing near the border town of Marivan.
