French President Emmanuel Macron called on Saturday for dialogue in Iraq between the central government in Baghdad and the semi-autonomous Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) within the framework of the Iraqi constitution.

After a meeting with Iraqi Kurdish Prime Minister Nechirvan Barzani in Paris, Macron told a news conference he was convinced a "constructive dialogue" could lead to lifting restrictions on the Kurdish region.
