Hemin Hawrami meets Ital­ian Con­sul and Head of UN mis­sion

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

The Head of the For­eign Re­la­tions Depart­ment of the Kur­dis­tan Demo­cratic Party, Hemin Hawrami met sep­a­rately with Dr Carmelo Fi­carra, the Gen­eral Con­sul of Italy in Er­bil, and Mr. Sokol Kondi, head of the UN Mis­sion in the city.

The meet­ings fo­cused on the cur­rent is­sues and sit­u­a­tion in the Kur­dis­tan Re­gion as well as the KDP stand­point on cur­rent af­fairs.

Dur­ing the meet­ing with Con­sul Fi­carra, Hawrami praised re­la­tions be­tween the Kur­dis­tan Re­gion and Italy and called for a fur­ther strength­en­ing of bi­lat­eral ties.

Hawrami also thanked the UN Mis­sion Head for his or­ga­ni­za­tion’s ac­tiv­i­ties in the Re­gion.

Hawrami ex­plained the ob­jec­tives and sig­nif­i­cance of Kur­dish Pres­i­dent Mas­soud Barzani’s re­cent Euro­pean tour, which he de­scribed as im­por­tant and pos­i­tive.

The po­lit­i­cal process in Kur­dis­tan Re­gion and Iraq were among the ma­jor topics ad­dressed dur­ing the meet­ings. The re­sult of the Septem­ber 2013 par­lia­men­tary elec­tion was de­scribed as a demo­cratic process.

Hawrami said they are now busy ne­go­ti­a­tion­ing with the win­ning par­ties about the for­ma­tion of the new KRG cab­i­net.

They also dis­cussed the is­sue of the up­com­ing Iraqi Par­lia­men­tary elec­tions and Er­bil-Bagh­dad re­la­tions. Hawrami re­it­er­ated that re­la­tions be­tween the KRG and the cen­tral gov­ern­ment are nor­mal and that “we are try­ing to im­prove them fur­ther.”

Ad­dress­ing the sit­u­a­tion in Syria, Hawrami said the Kur­dish lead­er­ship had an in­de­pen­dent stance in this re­gard, which is the in­ter­est of the Kurds in Syria.

Talk­ing about the oil is­sue in the Kur­dis­tan Re­gion, the KDP of­fi­cial ar­gued that the Re­gion is fully com­pli­ant with the Iraqi con­sti­tu­tion and that what they are do­ing is a nat­u­ral right of the Kur­dis­tan Re­gion.
