Kur­dis­tan Re­gion Pres­i­dent, Mas­soud Barzani, re­ceived a United Na­tions del­e­ga­tion headed by Mr. Nick­o­lay Mlade­nov, the Spe­cial Rep­re­sen­ta­tive of the U.N. Sec­re­tary Gen­eral for Iraq.

Dur­ing the meet­ing, Pres­i­dent Barzani and Mr. Mlade­nov dis­cussed the lat­est po­lit­i­cal and se­cu­rity de­vel­op­ments in Iraq and the most re­cent mil­i­tary ad­vances against the ter­ror­ists of the Is­lamic State by the Kur­dish Pesh­marga and the Iraqi forces.

Pres­i­dent Barzani stated that the fight against the ter­ror­ists re­mains the ut­most pri­or­ity to the Kur­dis­tan Re­gion. On the mat­ter of re­la­tions with Bagh­dad, Pres­i­dent Barzani ex­pressed his op­ti­mism and added that the dif­fer­ences will soon be re­solved be­tween the two parts.

The Spe­cial Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Mlade­nov agreed on the ur­gency of the fight against the ter­ror­ists and the need for even stronger col­lec­tive ef­forts to de­feat them. Fur­ther­more, Mr. Mlade­nov com­mended the Pesh­merga forces and Pres­i­dent Barzani for their lat­est suc­cesses against the IS.

Mr. Mlade­nov took the op­por­tu­nity to bid his farewell as he will soon take on a new task in Jerusalem. Pres­i­dent Barzani ex­pressed his grat­i­tude for Mr. Nlade­nov's co­op­er­a­tion and wished him con­tin­ued suc­cess in his new mission.
