A Kurdish minister in Iraq's cabinet said that the government of the country has agreed with reopening of a border crossing located in Iraq's Kurdistan and shared with Iran.

“At today's meeting, I suggested that the Sartak border officially reopen, and it was agreed by the cabinet,” Minister of Migration and Displacement in Iraq, Darbaz Mohammed, wrote on his Facebook page on Tuesday evening, IRNA reported.

He did not give any detail on the decision.

Sartak is one of the unofficial border crossings with Iran in the Iraqi Sulaimaniyah Province.

Iraq's Interior Ministry has recently decided to close some of the unofficial border crossings with Iran.

Iran, Iraq share a 1,458-kilometer border.
