The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

The United States Con­gress­man John McCain re­ceived mem­bers of the Barzani Char­ity Foun­da­tion in Wash­ing­ton last Wed­nes­day.

Head of the Foun­da­tion Sheikh Aziz Sheikh Raza thanked McCain for his sup­port to the Kur­dis­tan Re­gion.

In a dis­cus­sion about the refugee cri­sis, the 2008 Repub­li­can nom­i­nee for the US Pres­i­den­tial race praised the Barzani Foun­da­tion and the peo­ple of Kur­dis­tan for their work help­ing dis­placed peo­ple through­out the re­gion.

McCain said that Amer­i­cans are hope­ful about Pres­i­dent Mas­soud Barzani’s role lead­ing the fight against the Is- lamic State (IS), and promised more mil­i­tary and hu­man­i­tar­ian aid.

He sent his con­do­lences to those who have lost their loved ones fight­ing the IS.

McCain has been a long-time ally of the Kurds and since the start of the Is­lamic State war in north­ern Iraq, he has cam­paigned for US to send ground forces to Iraq to fight the ex­trem­ist group.
