The U.S. Consulate in Erbil is concerned by violations of press freedom in Duhok and the obstruction of media coverage of the Kurdistan Region's Prime Minister's visit to Halabja.

"We are concerned by reports of recent violations of media freedom, including the detention of journalists and activists in Duhok last week, and restrictions against media outlets during the Prime Minister’s recent visit to Halabja that appear politically motivated," the U.S. Consulate General stated in a Facebook statement.
Furthermore, the U.S. Consulate expressed its support for the complete implementation of the Kurdistan Region's press law and access to information law, as well as the unrestricted ability of journalists to carry out their jobs.
