Pro-Kurdish party officials to meet Iraqi Talabani on Wednesday

Iraq's President Jalal Talabani will meet with a delegation from Turkey's pro-Kurdish Democratic Society Party (DTP) in Suleimania in northern Iraq.

Pro-Kurdish party officials to meet Iraqi Talabani on Wednesday
The delegation headed by DTP Parliamentary Group Chairman Ahhmet Turk also includes two DTP officials, The New Anatolian said.

The DTP asked for an appointment from Talabani nearly four months ago but has managed to get the appointment now.

Sources said Talabani did not see it fit to meet the delegation as Turkey's relations with the Iraqi Kurds were going through a chilly period.

Turkey started a dialogue with the Iraqi Kurds last week when a senior Turkish delegation met with Kurdistan Regional Government's Prime Minister Nechirvan Barzani in Baghdad.

Talabani reportedly felt under these circumstances it would be wise to meet the DTP delegation and brief them about the new dialogue with Turkey.

The DTP delegation will also travel to Erbil and meet officials from the Kurdistan Regional Government and possibly Massoud Barzani.
