“There are efforts from the US Deputy Special Envoy and from the presidency of the Kurdistan Region to solve the outstanding points between the Kurdish parties,” Kherki told North Press.

“We, as ENKS, hope from the other side to show flexibility and to adopt the legitimate demands of the ENKS. Our demands are legitimate,” he added.

Kherki noted to the efforts of the US Deputy Special Envoy to Syria, David Brownstein and the president of the Kurdistan Region of Iraq, Nechirvan Barzani to solve the disputed points.
