Turkey’s ban on flights to Sulaymaniyah, in Iraqi Kurdistan, will reportedly be lifted.
The country's Transport Minister, Cahit Turhann told Anadolu Agency:
"Turkish Airlines will resume its flights from Istanbul to Sulaymaniyah [on Friday], seven flights a week."
According to Rudaw, Ankara has delayed the resumption of flights until Saturday due to technical issues.
The ban was imposed in September 2017 following the independence referendum in Iraqi Kurdistan.
