Mrs. Kader receives the visit of Hon. Massimo Artini, Vice President of the Defense Commission at the Chamber of Deputies

Today, Mrs. Rezan Kader received the visit of the Vice President of the IV Defense Commission at the Chamber of Deputies, Hon. Massimo Artini.
The talks focused on the current situation in the Kurdistan Region of the fight against the terrorists of ISIS, the severe humanitarian crisis, the urgent needs of the KRG on the humanitarian, military, medical field and the reconstruction of areas destroyed by terrorists of ISIS, like Shangal. Mrs. Kader invited Hon. Artini to put pressure on the Parliament to ensure that the Italian government can intervene even more in order to meet those demands and that also put pressure at European level, being the situation in Kurdistan unsustainable.
The Hon. Artini will try to give a concrete follow-up to those requests presented today by Mrs. Kader, as well as previously notified by herself during hearings at the Senate of the Republic, through parliamentary questions.
Moreover, he would be honoured to organize a mission in Kurdistan in the near future, along with the defense committee of the Senate in order to verify the needs on the ground and provide as much support as possible to the peshmerga forces, the Kurdish people but also to the Italian soldiers based in Erbil.
