Prime Min­is­ter Nechir­van Barzani last week re­ceived for­mer French prime min­is­ter Mr. François Fil­lon ac­com­pa­nied by a del­e­ga­tion of French law­mak­ers and diplo­mats.

Mr. Fil­lon, who vis­ited camps of refugees and in­ter­nally dis­placed per­sons as well as the bat­tle­front against ISIS, high­lighted the im­por­tant role the Pesh­merga forces play in the fight against ter­ror­ism.

They also dis­cussed the sit­u­a­tion of Chris­tians in Iraq who fled ISIS re­pres­sion and took refuge in the Kur­dis­tan Re­gion.

Prime Min­is­ter Barzani ex­pressed his govern­ment’s grat­i­tude for the continued French sup­port to the Kur­dis­tan Re­gion. He stated that as the fight against ter­ror­ism con­tin­ues, the dis­placed peo­ple who have fled their homes need more sup­port from the in­ter­na­tional com­mu­nity.

Dis­cussing re­la­tions be­tween Kur­dis­tan Re­gion, Bagh­dad, and neigh­bor­ing coun­tries, Prime Min­is­ter Barzani said Kur­dis­tan has al­ways sought to be a fac­tor of sta­bil­ity with all its neigh­bors and to set­tle out­stand­ing is­sues with Bagh­dad through di­a­logue.

They also dis­cussed po­lit­i­cal de­vel­op­ments in Iraq, the Syr­ian cri­sis, and eco­nomic and fi­nan­cial dif­fi­cul­ties in the Kur­dis­tan Re­gion.
