Prime Minister of the Kurdistan Region Nechirvan Barzani on Thursday affirmed that Erbil is ready to cooperate with the Iraq's federal government and the US-led coalition fighting ISIS to prevent the return of ISIS to the country.

Barzani met on Thursday with the United Kingdom's defense senior adviser on the Middle East, Lt. Gen. John Lorimer, accompanied by British Ambassador to Iraq Jon Wilks and British Consul General in Iraq Martin Warr, according to a statement from Barzani's office.
