Iran, Kurdistan Region discuss prisoners' swap
Iran and Iraq’s Kurdistan Region signed an agreement on swap of prisoners.

The agreement was signed between Iran’s Consul General to Erbil Morteza Ebadi and the representative of the Iraqi Kurdistan’s ministry of labor and social affairs, IRNA reported.

“A sum of 86 prisoners out of a total 159 will be transferred to Iran from Iraqi Kurdistan,” Ebadi announced in Erbil late Monday.

Iran and Iraq have signed several agreements so far to extradite 'convicts and criminals' wanted by the two neighbors.

The two countries have enjoyed growing ties ever since the overthrow of the former Iraqi dictator, Saddam Hussein, during the 2003 US invasion of the Muslim country.
