Fol­low­ing his Europe tour, Kur­dis­tan Re­gion’s Pres­i­dent Mas­soud Barzani re­turned to Kur­dis­tan Re­gion via Er­bil In­ter­na­tional Air­port on Satur­day, Fe­bru­ary 14, 2015.

Pres­i­dent Barzani and an ac­com­pa­ny­ing del­e­ga­tion vis­ited Europe to at­tend the 2015 Mu­nich Se­cu­rity Con­fer­ence last week.

Dur­ing their stay in Europe, the Kur­dish del­e­ga­tion also met with a num­ber world lead­ers in Ger­many. Pres­i­dent Barzani vis­ited Paris, France, where he met the French Pres­i­dent François Hol­lande and other top of­fi­cials.

Aus­tria was the del­e­ga­tion’s last stop, where they met the Aus­trian Pres­i­dent Hans Fischer.

The world lead­ers re­it­er­ated their sup­port for the KRG in their fight against ter­ror­ism as well as in the refugee cri­sis the Re­gion faces as more than 1.5 mil­lion peo­ple have fled to Kur­dis­tan Re­gion es­cap­ing vi­o­lence in Syria and Iraq.
