On May 17, Pres­i­dent of Kur­dis­tan Re­gion, Ma­soud Barzani held a meet­ing with a United States mil­i­tary del­e­ga­tion headed by Gen­eral Lloyd Austin, Com­man­der of the United States Cen­tral Com­mand. Gen­eral Austin and Pres­i­dent Barzani spoke of the Pres­i­dent’s lat­est visit to Wash­ing­ton and on ways to fur­ther strengthen the bi­lat­eral re­la­tions be­tween the United States and the Kur­dis­tan Re­gion.

Pres­i­dent Barzani and Gen­eral Lloyd Austin also spoke of the lat­est de­velop- ments in Iraq es­pe­cially in the al-An­bar prov­ince. The two sides agreed on the sig­nif­i­cance of quick riddance of the ter­ror­ists of the Is­lamic State in Ra­madi and other ar­eas in al-An­bar prov­ince.

Gen­eral Austin re­it­er­ated the sup­port of the United States to the Pesh­merga forces and to the Iraqi forces in their war against the ter­ror­ists, adding that this com­mon en­emy must be de­feated so that the peo­ple of Iraq and the Kur­dis­tan Re­gion can re­sume their ef­forts in build­ing a demo­cratic state.
