According to the allegations of Fırat News Agency, known for its sympathies for the PKK party, a joint commission was established to re-draw border between Turkey and Iraq in a way to enable the border pass from more secure places. The news agency said the joint commission had its first meeting on Nov. 10 in Dohuk.

Officials of the regional Kurdish administration said the low level first meeting took place in a positive atmosphere. "An agreement was signed between the two parties to establish an expert and joint commission to arrange the borders," an official said.
