US Commends Peshmerga Ministry’s Reforms, Pledges Continued Support
Kurdistan Region Prime Minister on Monday received US Ambassador to Iraq Matthew Tueller in Erbil to discuss bilateral ties and the latest developments in the region.
“Ambassador Tueller highlighted the positive reform measures taken by the Peshmerga Ministry, and reaffirmed continued support to the Peshmerga by the United States,” PM Barzani said in a statement after the meeting.
The two officials also discussed the recently passed 2021 Federal Budget Law of Iraq, about which the Kurdish premier reaffirmed his government’s commitment to its obligations under the new law.
“I also called on the federal government to carry out its duties towards the Kurdistan Region in accordance with the law,” PM Barzani added.
Reviewing the US-Iraq Strategic Dialogue, whose third round took place last week, was also on the agenda of the meeting.
