ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – Ukraine and Sri Lanka are due to open consulates in the Kurdistan Region, bringing the number of foreign representation offices in the Kurdistan Region to 38.
  
The foreign relations office of the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) welcomed the decisions made by Ukraine and Sri Lanka to open their honorary consulates as a way to strengthen relations with these two countries in terms of economy, trade, and culture.

The decision to open the honorary consulates is part of the KRG’s policy of developing its relations with the international community, the statement added. The move received approval from the Iraqi federal government and the KRG. 

Negotiations with Ukraine began last September. Sri Lanka expressed an interest in establishing relations with Kurdistan in 2013.

CONFIDENCE | 28/8/2017
Opening two new foreigne consulates in Erbil shows the confidence that the international comunity has in the future of Kurdistan as a state , particulary in this context of controversy over the Kurdish independence referendum to be held on 25 September.

'Sri Lanka expressed an interest in establishing relations with Kurdistan ???' This must be the funniest piece of news I have read In a while. First of all, Sri Lanka has full diplomatic ties with Iraq with an embassy in Baghdad . Opening a consulate in Erbil or Basra or Najaf is a normal procedure for diplomatic missions in a country . Of course the host country has to approve it. In this case the Republic of Iraq. Secondly, 'kurdistan' is not a country for Sri Lanka to 'establish relations with' . I don't understand when will rudaw start posting credible news instead of posting twisted lies .
