Nechirvan Barzani to make trip to UAE
An advisor to the Kurdistan Regional Government president announced Nechiron Barzani will make a visit the UAE to attend the funeral of the late UAE president.

Delshad Shahab, an adviser to Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) President Nachirvan Barzani, told Rudaw TV that Barzani would travel to the UAE to attend the funeral of Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed, the head of the United Arab Emirates.
Earlier, the Prime Minister of the region, Masrour Barzani, headed a high-level delegation to the UAE and attended the funeral of Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed. Sulaimani Governor Hawal Abu Bakr was another Kurdistan Regional Government official who attended the funeral.
United Arab Emirates President Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan died on Friday at the age of 73, Emirati state news agency WAM reported.
“The Ministry of Presidential Affairs announced that there will be 40 days of official mourning with flags at half mast and three days closure of ministries and official entities at the federal and local levels and the private sector,” the agency wrote on Twitter on Friday.
Sheikh Khalifa had rarely been seen in public since suffering a stroke in 2014, with his brother, Abu Dhabi’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed (known as MBZ) seen as the de facto ruler and the decision-maker of major foreign policy decisions.
