No to participation of Shiite militias in Mosul, says Masrour Barzani

masrour-barzani-general-stephen-townsend-isisMasrour Barzani once again reiterated on the exclusion of Shiite militias in the current Mosul liberation campaign and the aftermath politics.

On Monday the Chancellor of the Kurdistan Region’s Security Council Masrour Barzani received Lieutenant General Stephen Townsend, Commander of the International Coalition for Operation Inherent Resolve. The meeting focused on the war against ISIS terrorists, the military developments in the area, the Peshmerga achievements and the cooperation between Peshmerga and Iraqi army forces in the Mosul liberation campaign.

“Armed groups operating outside of Iraq’s legal institutions must not have a role in the Mosul campaign or its aftermath,” noted Masrour Barzani, calling on the United States to provide further military aid to the Peshmerga forces.
