Faramarz Akbari stated that "as of Sunday, Parviz Khan
border terminal has been shut and no trade exchange, export, import of
travelling of passengers are being carried out.”
He said the reason for shutting down the border terminal
pertained to ongoing disputes between the Iraqi government and the northern
Iraq’s Kurdish Regional Government (KRG).
"Parviz Khan center is an official border venue between Iran
and Iraq and is likely to remain temporarily closed as long as the central
government forces replace the Kurdish regional forces and settle at the
border,” he continued.
Governor of Ghasreshirin, while noting that the time for
reopening the terminal was unspecified, expressed hope that Parviz Khan will
become active again once internal issues between Iraqi government and KRG are
resolved and disputes are settled.
He underscored that the border terminal had been shut at the
request of Iraq’s central government.
"As long as Parviz Khan terminal is closed, Khosravi border
remains an alternative for trade transactions and commuting of passengers,”
