ERBIL — The US President Donald Trump will meet with the Iraqi delegation consisting of Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi and Kurdistan Region representative next week.
A senior official source in Kurdistan Region confirmed to BasNews that PM Abadi and a representative of Kurdistan Region, who are set to take part in the global coalition’s meeting, will also meet the US President in Washington.
Minister Falah Mustafa, head of the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) Department of Foreign Relations told BasNews on Monday that Kurdistan Region will officially take part in the meeting of the coalition members after it complained about its exclusion from the previous sessions.
He revealed that Fuad Hussein, Chief of Staff to the Kurdistan Region presidency, will represent the Kurdistan Region in the meeting and he is also expected to address the meeting about the war on IS and the post-IS era.
On March 22, the United States of America will host a major meeting of the 68 member states of the coalition against IS and the US Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, will chair the talks, the State Department said on Thursday.
