Iraqi Prime Minister Al-Maliki Visits Kurdistan Region.

Arbil, Iraq, Rajab 30, 1434, Jun 9, 2013, SPA - Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri Al-Maliki visited the Kurdistan region on Sunday for the first time in more than two years, according to a report of Reuters.

Al-Maliki's last official trip to Kurdistan was in 2010, when the "Arbil Agreement" was struck, allowing him to form a power-sharing government.

"Our expectations should not be too high," said the Kurdistan Regional Government's chief of foreign affairs, Falah Mustafa. "The ball is in the court of the federal government in Baghdad." A cabinet meeting is due to be held in the Kurdish capital Arbil on Sunday.
