Bilateral relations between the Kurdistan Region and the UK

APPG Chair Mary Glindon asked the Foreign and Commonwealth Office to update parliament on its assessment of bilateral relations with the Kurdistan Region in Iraq. The Middle East Minister Dr Andrew Murrison replied on 9 September 2019.

“The UK retains strong relations with the Kurdistan Region of Iraq (KRI). British Ministers and officials regularly engage with KRI representatives. On 1 September our Ambassador to Iraq met the KRI Prime Minister, Masrour Barzani, to discuss latest developments and I spoke to the KRI President, Nechirvan Barzani, on 12 June. The UK also provides significant support to the KRI, including through training assistance to the Peshmerga, humanitarian aid, advice on economic reform, and continued efforts to deepen UK-KRI trade.”

Good work and much to build on.
