Shafaaq reports that a new border crossing has been opened between Sulaymaniyah in Iraqi Kurdistan, and Iran.
The new crossing at Siran Bin is the third in the province, and connects with the Iranian city of Bana.
At the opening ceremony, the governor of Sulaimaniyah predicted that the new crossing will ease the financial crisis in the Kurdistan Region, providing many job opportunities for citizens in the region.
