The Kurdish Globe - - FRONT PAGE -

Kur­dis­tan Re­gion Pres­i­dent, Ma­soud Barzani, re­ceived a diplo­matic del­e­ga­tion from the United King­dom headed by Am­bas­sador Frank Baker, the UK's am­bas­sador to Iraq.

Dur­ing the meet­ing Pres­i­dent Barzani and Am­bas­sador Baker dis­cusses the po­lit­i­cal and se­cu­rity is­sues in Iraq in gen­eral and in the Kur­dis­tan in par­tic­u­lar. The two sides also talked about the Is­lamic State's ad­vance in Ra­madi and spoke of the dan­ger that is posed by the ter­ror­ists of the Is­lamic State not only to Iraq, but also be­yond.

Am­bas­sador Baker and Pres­i­dent Barzani also spoke of the re­la­tions be­tween Bagh­dad and Er­bil and ex­pressed op­ti­mism on the mat­ter. He re­it­er­ated the sup­port of the United King­dom to the Kur­dis­tan Re­gion, es­pe­cially dur­ing this cru­cial time as the Kur­dis­tan Re­gion is en­gaged at a war against the cruel Is­lamic State.
