Thursday, July 6, 2017 - 12:15

GPF Secretary General Doriano Dragoni and PES Deputy Secretary General Giacomo Filibeck met Yousif Ahmed Sadiq, President of the Parliament of South-Kurdistan and Dler Mawati, Deputy Head of the Committee for Peshmerga Affairs, to discuss the situation in Iraqi Kurdistan.

The Iraqi Kurd delegation, composed of both the Movement for Change (Gorran)and the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK - PES sister party), is in Brussels for a 3-day visit, to highlight the current situation in Iraq, and especially the fight against the Islamic State, the political crisis in Iraqi Kurdistan and the recess of the Parliament.

 

The GPF will continue to support the dialogue between democratic and progressive forces in the region, and will pay close attention to the announced referendum, hoping that free and fair elections will unlock the internal Iraqi Kurd political crisis.
