The Kurdistan parliament on Thursday issued a clarification on the news that parliamentarian Mona Kahwaji was prevented from traveling to Turkey.

"This news is far from the truth," said a statement by the Kurdistan parliament. "The prevention of Kurdistan parliament secretary Mona Kahwaji is due to her being a member of the Supreme Council for the referendum."

The statement pointed out that Kahwaji was a candidate for the Turkmen blocs and was elected for the post of secretary of parliament after obtaining 59 votes in the parliament session on 18/29 2019 and got the position share of the Turkmen component in Kurdistan.
