BasNews is an independent and multilingual news agency based in Erbil, the capital of the Kurdistan Region of Iraq. We publish political, economic social news.
With Kurdistan becoming an important center for political and economic development in the Middle East, the region’s media has sought to cover the events on the ground, and inform the world of them. We aim to report in the utmost objective and accurate manner.
BasNews has correspondents and bureaus in many of the world’s capitals, providing our readership with national and international news.
We are currently discussing future partnerships with a number of international news agencies, in order to increase our news output.
BasNews also works with international news agencies and journalists that are active on the ground, by providing them with guides, fixers and translators.
