Baghdad blockes Belgian Defense Minister to visit Erbil

WAAR-DUHOK:

 

The Iraqi government blocked a visit by Belgium’s defence minister to his country’s troops in the Kurdistan Region last year, the KRG’s representative in Europe has revealed.

“The Belgian Minister of Defense Steven Vandeput was set to visit Baghdad and Erbil to check on Belgian soldiers stationed in the two places, but the Iraqi government would not consent to him visiting the KRG, so the minister cancelled his visit to Iraq,” Delavar Ajgeiy told Rudaw on Friday.

Belgium, consequently, summoned the Iraqi ambassador to explain the matter, Ajgeiy stated.
