ERBIL— Change Movement (Gorran) and the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) will meet to settle their issues and there is a chance that they also work out a new agreement, said a Gorran official.
In a statement to BasNews on Thursday, Sheikh Omar Kakahama, a member of Gorran's General Council, said the expected meeting between the two parties will be comprehensive.
The official did not comment on the timing for the meeting, which will mark as the first session of face-to-face talks between the two parties in months.
Political disputes between the two sides led the KDP, at the head of the Kurdistan government, to dismiss Gorran minister and parliament speaker.
Gorran labeled the move a "political coup" and the KDP a "measure to protect the security of Gorran officials." Several meetings to resolve the tensions ended with no tangible results and Gorran's refusal to receive further delegations from the KDP.
Kakahama also believed that the meeting will result in a "good understanding" and will ease the escalated tensions between the two sides.
"If the KDP and Gorran meet together there is a big chance that they reach a new agreement," the official added.
Recently the KDP announced it is ready to reconcile with Gorran unconditionally. The party said its initiative aims at reaching national unity for the sake of the imminent independence referendum in Kurdistan. It was only then that Gorran agreed to resume talks.
Commenting on the campaign against the independence referendum (due on September 25 this year) which is proclaimed under the name of Gorran Movement members, Kakahama stated the campaign is not related to them.
He added Gorran does not support the campaign and the campaigners "because it has always backed the national causes."
