Ukraine to open embassy office in Erbil to revive ties

Ukraine has decided to open its first Embassy office in the Kurdistan Region as part of preparations to revive ties with Erbil, said head of country’s diplomatic mission in Iraq.

Ukraine’s Ambassador to Iraq Viktor Nedopas visited Erbil on Wednesday as he met with top Kurdish officials to discuss bilateral ties.

During the meetings, Nedopas noted that Kiev was hoping to re-establish close relations with the Kurds.

“There were strong ties between Ukraine and Kurdistan in the past. We hope that we revive this relation. We have also encouraged our companies to invest in different sectors in the Kurdistan Region,” Nedopas said.
