The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

The Kur­dish Prime Min­is­ter, Nechir­van Barzani, on Mon­day, De­cem­ber 15, 2014, re­ceived Mr. Ge­org Enzweiler, on the oc­ca­sion of his ap­point­ment as Ger­many's new Gen­eral Con­sul to the Kur­dis­tan Re­gion.

Mr. Enzweiler ex­pressed his plea­sure to be ap­pointed as his coun­try's Con­sul to Kur­dis­tan and hoped to fur­ther de­velop bi­lat­eral re­la­tions be­tween the two coun­tries. He lauded the Kur­dis­tan Gov­ern­ment, peo­ple and Pesh­merga forces for their fight against ter­ror­ism and ac­com­mo­dat­ing a large num­ber of in­ter­nally dis­placed peo­ple and refugees.

Mr. Enzweiler re­it­er­ated his coun­try's hu­man­i­tar­ian and mil­i­tary support to the Kur­dish Gov­ern­ment. The Gen­eral Con­sul also reaf­firmed his coun­try's de­ter­mi­na­tion to fur­ther strengthen the po­lit­i­cal and eco­nomic ties with Kur­dis­tan. He added that many Ger­man com­pa­nies ac­tively par­tic­i­pated in the Er­bil in­ter­na­tional trade fair, which was held last week in Er­bil, say­ing that Ger­many will con­tinue to en­cour­age its com­pa­nies to work here.

Prime Min­is­ter Barzani con­grat­u­lated Mr. Enzweiler for his ap­point­ment and re­it­er­ated the KRG's support for the suc­cess of the Con­sul's mis­sion in Kur­dis­tan. The Prime Min­is­ter val­ued the hu­man­i­tar­ian and mil­i­tary support pro­vided by the Ger­man gov­ern­ment and hoped that this support will con­tinue in fu­ture.

The relation be­tween Er­bil and Bagh­dad, the cur­rent po­lit­i­cal and mil­i­tary sit­u­a­tion and the threat of the Is­lamic State ter­ror­ist or­ga­ni­za­tion, the re­gional se­cu­rity and sta­bil­ity were also among the top­ics dis­cussed in the meet­ing.

The Con­sul wel­comed the break­through agree­ment reached ear­lier this month be­tween the Kur­dis­tan and the Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment of Iraq and hoped for a suc­cess­ful out­come.

Both sides agreed on fur­ther de­vel­op­ing the col­lab­o­ra­tion and co­or­di­na­tion be­tween both coun­tries stress­ing the his­tor­i­cal re­la­tions be­tween the two peo­ples.
