Iraqi army takes control of Iraqi-Kurdish border crossing with Turkey

The Ibrahim al-Khalil border crossing "has been handed over to the central government" of Iraq, Yildirim told his ruling party at a televised meeting in Ankara on October 31.

Turkish soldiers patrol the road to Habur border gate near the Turkish-Iraq border in Silopi district in Sirnak city, Turkey, 24 September 2017. He said "a committee is overseeing the redeployment of federal forces to areas taken under the control of the Kurdish region after 2003", the year of the USA -led invasion that toppled Saddam Hussein. Disputes between the KRG and the Baghdad federal government range from the perennial tussle over how to share oil revenues to the control of territory and border crossings.

Iraq's prime minister on Monday called for calm in the self-ruled northern Kurdish region after rioting the previous night. The fields were previously operated by the KAR Group on behalf of the KRG, which had asserted its ownership over them since its Peshmerga forces seized them from Islamic State control in 2014.

Zebari, the Kurdish government adviser, said the Kurds were prepared to accept "Iraqis at the airports and border posts to have oversight, to make sure everyone is in compliance", but any such presence must be achieved through negotiations, not force.

The leader of Iraq's semi-autonomous Kurdistan region is stepping down after a failed push for independence.

"Those who take advantage of the route will be stopped", he said, referring to KRG racketeering practices that affect trucks that use the Kurdish region to reach other parts of Iraq.
