(Iraq Now News)- The Kurdistan Region’s Foreign Minister, Falah Mustafa met on Monday (November 13) with U.S.

anti-Islamic State envoy Brett McGurk in Washington for talks on the US and Erbil bilateral relationship.

In a post on his official Twitter account, Mustafa described the meeting as a good opportunity “to further strengthening #USG-#KRG partnership & coordinate the way forward.”

Mustafa said he discussed with McGurk current developments and reemphasized the Kurdistan Region’s commitment to a stronger partnership between the US and Erbil.

During his meeting with Mustafa at the US State Department, McGurk tweeted that they discussed “the vital importance of a strong and united #KRG within the constitutional framework of #Iraq.”

After a military standoff between Erbil and Baghdad in the aftermath of the autonomous Kurdish region‘s independence referendum, the US President Donald Trump said his country is "not taking sides." 

Speaking after Iraqi troops and tanks swept across the northern province capturing oil and military targets from the Kurds and seizing the governor‘s office in Kirkuk city, Trump made clear he was not going to inject himself into the dispute between two U.S.

allies who have fought together with the U.S.

coalition against ISIS.

Following Trump’s statements, the Kurdish people and their leaders voiced a sense of deep betrayal by the U.S.

government to media, through demonstrations and via political narratives.
