ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – US President Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner and Gen. Joseph Dunford, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, is meeting with Kurdish leaders in Erbil on Tuesday.

The US visitors have met with Kurdish President Masoud Barzani, Prime Minister Nechirvan Barzani, Deputy Prime Minister Qubad Talabani, along with veteran Peshmerga commander Mohammad Haji Mahmoud, and other Kurdish officials.

Masrour Barzani, Chancellor of the Kurdistan Region Security Council, described the meeting on Twitter as “productive,” saying they discussed progress in the war against ISIS and “plans for the day after.”

Dunford and Kushner were in Baghdad Monday where they met with Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi and were updated on the war against ISIS.

Kushner, on his first trip to Iraq, came on the invitation of Dunford, “to meet with Iraqi leaders, senior US advisors, and visit with US forces in the field to receive an update on the status of the counter-ISIS campaign in Iraq and Syria,” according to a press statement.

Trump’s advisor and son-in-law “is travelling on behalf of the President to express the President’s support and commitment to the Government of Iraq and US personnel currently engaged in the campaign,” the press statement detailed.
