On Wednesday, Masrour Barzani, on his capacity as member of the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) Politburo, accompanied by other senior KDP leaders, visited the KIU and met with its General Secretary Salahaddin Bahadin and members of the KIU politburo to discuss recent political and regional developments, the current war on ISIS and the post-war period, as well as the independence of Kurdistan. Masrour Barzani highlighted the importance of unity between the political parties to achieve independence for Kurdistan.
He referred to the latest call by President Masoud Barzani for resolving the political issues of the Kurdistan Region and underlined on the historical responsibilities to remove all the obstacles to reach a solution in which the interests of the people of Kurdistan lies above anything else.
