"We understand and respect the PGA of America's decision regarding Ted Bishop," Finchem said.

Peshmerga ministry spokesman Halgord Hekmat declined to specify what route the Iraqi Kurdish forces would take, but they are expected to travel overland through Turkey, which has said it will allow them transit.
