Former President of Kurdistan and leader of the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) has met with the United States special presidential envoy Brett McGurk to discuss current events, Sofrep news reported.


McGurk congratulated the KDP on their recent success in the Iraqi parliamentary elections, in which the KDP won overall in both the cities of Duhok and Erbil. 


They collectively agreed upon the importance of Kurdistan’s continued participation of the formation and organization of the future Iraqi central government.


McGurk is an envoy for the anti-ISIS coalition but as ISIS’s presence in Iraq fades, he has become increasingly involved with diplomatic relations in the region.
