Chancellor of the Kurdistan Region Security Council (KRSC) Masrour Barzani reviewed on Wednesday the latest developments and progress of the fight against ISIS in Iraq and Syria with Maj. Gen. Patrick Roberson, commander of Special Operations Joint Task Force-Operation Inherent Resolve.

A KRSC statement said Barzani and Roberson exchanged talks about the bilateral relations between the Kurdistan Region and its neighbors, as well as expectations for Iraq’s new government.

During the meeting, held in Erbil, Barzani hoped Iraq’s new Prime Minister, Adel Abdul-Mahdi, begins a new chapter in Erbil-Baghdad relations based on mutual respect, cooperation, and in line with rights affordable to the Kurdistan Region in the Iraqi Constitution.

Barzani is a member of the Kurdistan Democratic Party leadership, son of Kurdistan Region President Masoud Barzani.
