Iran's Soleimani reaches Kurdistan for talks on Baghdad- Erbil crisis

Iranian Major General Qassem Soleimani has arrived in Iraq’s Kurdistan region for holding talks on the escalating Baghdad-Erbil crisis after Kurdistan has conducted the Region's independence referendum, Reuters quoted a Kurdish official as saying on Sunday.

Soleimani is the commander of foreign operations for Iran’s Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), a military corp providing training and weapons to Iraqi paramilitary groups backing the Shiite-led government in Baghdad.

Kurdistan has conducted the Region's independence referendum on Sep.25 with an overwhelming vote for independence.
