Mas­rour Barzani asks for more weapons from the UK

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

Mas­rour Barzani, the Kur­dis­tan Se­cu­rity Coun­cil Ad­vi­sor, re­ceived a del­e­ga­tion from the UK Par­lia­ment's De­fense Com­mit­tee, headed by MP Dai Havard.

The meet­ing, which was at­tended by the UK Gen­eral Con­sule in Er­bil, was mainly fo­cused on the cur­rent se­cu­rity sit­u­a­tion in Iraq and Syria, the threats of the ter­ror­ists on the world se­cu­rity and sta- bil­ity and the mil­i­tary and fi­nan­cial re­sources needed for the war on ter­ror.

The del­e­ga­tion re­it­er­ated the UK's com­mit­ment to fight­ing the Is­lamic State ter­ror­ists.

“This is an in­ter­na­tional war against ter­ror­ism,” Barzani told the del­e­ga­tion. “To re­move this threat, we need a co­or­di­nated ef­fort and re­sponse. We have al­ways said and we re­peat that the IS should not be left with any safe place and the air strikes should be in­creased.”

Prais­ing the UK's con­tin­ued support for Kur­dish Pesh­mar­gas, Barzani asked the del­e­ga­tion for more weapons for their fight against IS.

The del­e­ga­tion promised to re­port all the needs of Kur­dis­tan Re­gion to their Par­lia­ment and the Bri­tish gov­ern­ment.
