|KRG president thanks Iran for supporting Iraqi Kurds||
TEHRAN – The president of Iraq’s semi-autonomous Kurdistan Regional Government has praised Iran for supporting Iraqi Kurds under the current tough times as ISIL terrorists have launched a bloody campaign in northern Iraq.
In a letter to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani published by local media on Sunday, Masoud Barzani thanked the Islamic Republic for throwing its weight behind the Iraqi Kurds in the face of the ongoing crisis fueled by
ISIL Takfiri terrorists, Press TV reported.
The Kurdish leader further said friendly relations and mutual Tehran-Erbil cooperation will definitely consolidate peaceful co-existence between neighboring Iranian and Kurdish people.
Kurdish media reports say Tehran has dispatched shipments of humanitarian aid, including food and medicine, to Iraq’s Kurdistan region since the ISIL militants began their terrorist operations in north Iraq in early June.
