Iraqi PM stresses protection for Kurdistan

Abdul Mahdi

Iraqi PM Adil Abdul-Mahdi has expressed support toward the Kurds, stressing that he would defend the Kurdistan Region, even more than the Kurds themselves.

In a meeting on Wednesday with Abdul-Mahdi, Deputy Parliament Speaker Bashir Haddad also pointed out that the prime minister had spent four years fighting alongside the Kurdish Peshmerga forces against the former Iraqi Baath regime.

Moreover, Haddad indicated a visit by Nuri al-Maliki, a former Prime Minister and head of State of Law coalition, to Erbil soon.
