Kurdish Representatives To Attend UN Meetings On Iraq

BAGHDAD -- The Iraqi government has agreed to include representatives of Iraq's Kurdistan regional government (KRG) in official delegations attending UN meetings.

Dindar Zebari, KRG coordinator for UN affairs, told RFE/RL's Radio Free Iraq that KRG representatives would be within Iraqi delegations to UN sessions in New York and Geneva.

He said they will also attend meetings of the UN's specialized agencies, including the meetings held by the United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq.

KRG runs Iraq's northern Kurdish autonomous region. The region has enjoyed relative stability after Saddam Hussein's regime was toppled in 2003.
