Masrour Barzani receives British Ambassador to Turkey
Chancellor Masrour Barzani received today the British Ambassador to Turkey, Mr. Richard Moore, to discuss recent political and military developments in Iraq and the Middle East.
Both officials touched on the ongoing campaign to defeat ISIL in Iraq and emphasized the importance of clearing areas still occupied by ISIL, including in Mosul. Chancellor Barzani underlined the importance for a political agreement to prepare for post-ISIL management of the areas.
Commenting on the issue, he said: “I have no doubt that ISIL will be defeated in Iraq. The challenge is to restore trust between the communities and win the peace.”
He added that Peshmerga commanders remain in dialogue with their counterparts in the Iraqi military and the U.S.-led Global Coalition.
