BAGHDAD - Iraqi forces and Kurdish Peshmerga fighters on Sunday started a second round of talks to resolve a conflict about control of the Kurdistan region's border crossings, Iraqi state TV said.

Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi on Friday ordered a 24-hour suspension to military operations against Kurdish forces in northern Iraq. The two sides held a first round of talks on Friday and Saturday.

Abadi said the talks are meant to pave the way for the peaceful deployment of Iraqi troops at the border crossings of Iraq's Kurdistan region with Turkey, Iran and Syria.
