President Barzani: doors are open for Arabs to join Peshmerga
On March 19, Kurdistan Region President Masoud Barzani met with the former UK Government’s Security Envoy to the Kurdistan Region, Lieutenant General Sir Simon Mayall, and the newly appointed Envoy General Tom Beckett.
The meeting focused on the efforts by the Peshmerga forces to defeat the ISIS. The UK envoy congratulated the Kurdish forces for their recent successes and reiterated his government’s commitment to support them.
President Barzani expressed his thanks to the UK and other international coalition partners for their support of Kurdistan. He added that without such support, from the UK, the USA, and other coalition members the recent gains by the Peshmerga forces would not have been possible.
