Kurdistan Regional Parliament to fly pre-Baathist Iraqi Flag

The Kurdistani flag and the Iraqi flag, used in the time of Abdulkarim Qasim's rule prior to the rise of the Baath regime, will be used during a meeting between Mesud Barzani, who is expected to become the president of federal Kurdistan, and Iraqi president Jabal Talabani. The same flags will be used the first session of the Kurdistan Regional Parliament, with Talabani attending will be held similarly. Kurdistan Democratic Party supporters have not used the Iraqi flag since Saddam Hussein was overthrown, claiming that it represents the Baathist regime.
