BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:50 P.M.) – Hundreds of trucks crossed the Parviz Khan Border crossing with the Iraqi Kurdistan region in Sulaymaniyah on Wednesday, after Baghdad requested it’s re-opening.

Iran re-opened two crossings with the Iraqi Kurdistan region, Tamarchin and Parviz Khan, on Tuesday after being closed for over two months following tensions between the Iraqi government and the Erbil-based Kurdish regional government after the Kurdish referendum.

Truck drivers that had been unable to work for weeks, expressed their optimism over the gesture, “two months ago the crossing was closed and we were jobless, thank goodness the crossing is re-opened now and we can go forth as usual.”

For Varshad Abbas, a truck driver from Kermanshah in Iran, this constitutes a “good gesture” from Iran’s side and is linked with the wave of demonstrations that has shook Iran over the past days.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.
