The delegation, led by Prime Minister Mr. Masrour Barzani and composed of four ministers and technicians, thanked the Minister for Italy's commitment to the fight against ISIS and for the hard and helpful work carried out for years by the contingent stationed in the area.
On this occasion, Minister Guerini reiterated that the whole anti-Isis Coalition recognized the excellent level of operation achieved by the Peshmerga and reiterated that the coalition could never have achieved these objectives without their immense courage.
Finally, Prime Minister Masrour Barzani and Minister Lorenzo Guerini discussed the current situation in the Region with particular regard to Iraq and highlighted the good ongoing cooperation between Italy and the Kurdistan Region.
