President Barzani receives Iraqi President
Kurdistan Region President Masoud Barzani welcomed Iraqi President Fuad Masoum in his office in Salahaddin. The meeting focused on status of the fronts against the ISIS terrorists, and the latest political and security developments in Kurdistan and in Iraq.
They both emphasized that political differences must be resolved by dialogue between all sides.
Masoum arrived in Sulaimani a few days to hold a series of meetings with Kurdistan Regional Government officials. Masoum met with former Iraqi President and current Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) leader Jalal Talabani, and then met with members of the PUK central council before meeting Kurdistan Region President, Barzani.
In early March, Masoum met Barzani at the Salahaddin Resort in Erbil province as both sides discussed political and economic issues, the ongoing war against ISIS and a new Baghdad-Erbil oil agreement.
