The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

Kur­dis­tan Re­gion Pres­i­dent Ma­soud Barzani met with Pres­i­dent of the In­ter­na­tional Res­cue Com­mit­tee (IRC) David Miliband on Fe­bru­ary 16, in his of­fice in Sala­haddin to dis­cuss the hu­man­i­tar­ian sit­u­a­tion of the IDPs and refugees in Kur­dis­tan.

Miliband said his or­ga­ni­za­tion has been ac­tive in Kur­dis­tan, and he is here to find out for him­self how the IRC could fur­ther help the KRG cope with the large num­bers of IDPs. He said the IRC would con­duct ad­vo­cacy in coun­tries around the world to di­rect more ur­gently needed as­sis­tance for IDPs and help the KRG deal with this heavy bur­den.

For his part, Pres­i­dent Barzani thanked the IRC for its ac­tiv­i­ties help­ing IDPs and refugees. He stated that pro­vid­ing shel­ter and as­sis­tance for the IDPs is a pri­or­ity of the KRG, but the fun­da­men­tal so­lu­tion to this prob­lem is to ex­pel the ter­ror­ists and then let th­ese peo­ple re­turn to their homes.

The two also dis­cussed the po­lit­i­cal and se­cu­rity sit­u­a­tion in the coun­try in gen­eral.
