(Iraq Now News)-

Kurdistan Region Government PM Nechirvan Barzani met Wednesday with the head of the US Central Command, General Joseph Votel, and an accompanying military and diplomatic delegation in Erbil. The meeting tackled the latest developments in the Baghdad-Erbil crisis and the talks Barzani held in Davos with Iraqi PM Haider Abadi.The relations between Iraq and KRG have been severed following the independence referendum held on September 25th.

The referendum gave an overwhelming YES for an independent Kurdistan. 

In early October, Iraqi armed forces allied with Iran-backed IMIS Militias invaded oil-rich Kirkuk.

Sectarian brutalities have been committed against civilians, particularly Sunnis. 

In the meeting, the US delegation reiterated its support for the Kurdistan Region’s Peshmerga forces.

Barzani thanked the US for its continued support and military assistance to the Peshmerga in the fight against ISIS.

He also said Kurdistan was grateful for the provision of training, weapons, and ammunition for the Kurdish forces, adding he hoped the US military assistance would continue.

Both sides also discussed means to resolve stranded issues with the Iraqi government on the basis of the constitution.

Gen.

Votel praised “the good cooperation and collaboration between Peshmerga and US soldiers and advisers,” stating that Washington will continue its military assistance for the Kurdish forces.
