SULAIMANI — Kurdistan Region President Nechirvan Barzani on Wednesday (January 15) met with a delegation of British military officials led by Lieutenant General Sir John Gordon Lorimer and discussed the current situation in Iraq and the continuing threat posed by Islamic State (ISIS).

“The resurgence of terror and ISIS is a serious threat that will endanger stability and tranquility,” Barzani said.

“Iraq and the Kurdistan Region need the assistance and support of the international coalition to face them.”

Barzani conveyed the importance of the continued collaboration between Iraqi Security Forces, the Peshmerga, and the coalition and warned about the consequences for the disputed areas that could result if that cooperation was threatened.

During the meeting, Barzani and the British delegation also discussed relations between Erbil and Baghdad and ways that the UK can help support both capitals.

ISIS militants continue to be active in and around Kirkuk and the disputed areas, despite its defeat and loss of the territory, and have launched a number of attacks over the last few months.
