The Kurdish Globe - - EDITORIAL -

In a meet­ing with the US Am­bas­sador to Iraq Robert Beecroft on Thurs­day, Fe­bru­ary 28th, Pres­i­dent Barzani said the KRG be­lieves that only through mean­ing­ful di­a­logue can Iraq’s cur­rent cri­sis be ended and that the KRG is work­ing to ini­ti­ate con­sul­ta­tion meet­ings with other Iraqi sides in Er­bil.

In Thurs­day’s meet­ing, Pres­i­dent Barzani and Am­bas­sador Beecroft dis­cussed the prob­lems fac­ing Iraq’s po­lit­i­cal process and ef­forts by Pres­i­dent Barzani to bring Iraq’s po­lit­i­cal groups to­gether in Er­bil and to find last­ing so­lu­tions to key chal­lenges fac­ing the coun­try.

Pres­i­dent Barzani said he will con­tinue in his ef­forts to en­gage with other Iraqi lead­ers for find­ing a res­o­lu­tion to the cur­rent po­lit­i­cal cri­sis. Am­bas­sador Beecroft said Washington wel­comes and fully sup­ports Pres­i­dent Barzani’s ef­forts.

The Pres­i­dent and the US Am­bas­sador also talked about the sit­u­a­tion of Syr­ian refugees in Kur­dis­tan. Am­bas­sador Beecroft said ac­cord­ing to their data, 91% of Syr­ian refugees in Iraq re­side in Kur­dis­tan and Washington deeply ap­pre­ci­ates the KRG for con­tin­u­ing to ac­cept Syr­ian refugees and to pro­vide hu­man­i­tar­ian aid to them. So far more than 75,000 Syr­ian refugees live in Kur­dis­tan.
