Leader of Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) Masoud Barzani
Leader of Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) Masoud Barzani affirmed during his meeting with a high-level delegation from Vatican City on Thursday that terrorism will never affect peaceful coexistence in Kurdistan.

Barzani received on Thursday the Vatican delegation, headed by Vatican Secretary of State Cardinal Pietro Parolin, who conveyed Pope Francis' greetings to Barzani.

Parolin and Barzani discussed the conditions of Iraqi Christians, where Parolin expressed appreciation to Kurdish government and people for their way in dealing with the crisis that erupted due to the domination of ISIS to most of Iraqi cities in 2014, leading to the displacement of large numbers of citizens including many Christians from Nineveh.

Barzani asserted that coexistence is part of Kurdish society's culture, adding that people from various components have lived together in peace as brothers and sisters in Kurdistan.

He affirmed the importance of keeping Kurdistan a place for peaceful coexistence between all religious and ethnic components.
