The Kurdish Globe - - FRONT PAGE -

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.
