Kurdistan Region President Nechirvan Barzani on Thursday sent congratulations to the new Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi upon his appointment to the position and the formation of his cabinet.

Kadhimi attended a session at the Iraqi parliament overnight Wednesday where 15 ministers from his proposed cabinet were approved to form a new government months after political deadlock in Baghdad.

“I hope his government succeeds in providing security, stability, and services for Iraqis and reinstates the constitutional rights of the Kurdistan Region,” Barzani wrote on Twitter. Source
