Barzani thanks Amer­i­cans for their sup­port

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

Kur­dis­tan Re­gion Pres­i­dent Mas­soud Barzani in­sists that destroying Is­lamic State (IS) is a job for the en­tire world, not just the Pesh­merga and the in­ter­na­tional coali­tion.

On Fe­bru­ary 18, Kur­dis­tan Re­gion Pres­i­dent Ma­soud Barzani met with US Se­na­tor Bob Corker, Chair­man of the Se­nate Com­mit­tee on For­eign Re­la­tions.

The Pres­i­dent and the US Se­na­tor dis­cussed the progress of the fight against ISIS ter­ror­ists, and in­ter­na­tional coali­tion sup­port for the Pesh­merga forces in the fight.

Se­na­tor Corker, who was ac­com­pa­nied by US Am­bas­sador to Iraq Stu­art Jones, praised the lead­er­ship of Pres­i­dent Barzani and the brav­ery of the Pesh­merga forces in push­ing back ISIS ter­ror­ists and said that the United States would con­tinue to help the Pesh­merga forces. He also said that the peo­ple of the United States have deep ap­pre­ci­a­tion for the sac­ri­fices made by the peo­ple of Kur­dis­tan in con­fronting ISIS ter­ror­ists and in tak­ing in many in­ter­nally dis­placed peo­ple from other parts of Iraq.

Pres­i­dent Barzani thanked the US se­na­tor and the Amer­i­can peo­ple for their sup­port of Kur­dis­tan. The Pres­i­dent said that fight­ing the ISIS ter­ror­ists can­not be the re­spon­si­bil­ity of Kur­dis­tan and the mem­bers of the in­ter­na­tional coali­tion alone; other coun­tries, he said, must also step up their ef­forts.
