Masrour Barzani

Kurdistan Region Prime Minister Masrour Barzani has said his government seeks to build “a genuine and constructive” partnership with the Iraqi federal government in Baghdad.

In remarks on Twitter after concluding his visit to Baghdad, Barzani said, “The KRG is fully committed to settling its outstanding issues with our federal counterparts, based on a clear understanding of both parties’ rights and duties as set out in the constitution.”

During the visit, which was the first for Barzani since he took office last week, he met with Iraqi President Barham Salih, Prime Minister Adil Abd al-Mahdi, and Parliament Speaker Mohammed al-Halbousi.
