Kurdistan Region Prime Minister Masrour Barzani met with Britain’s Ambassador to Iraq, Mark Bryson-Richardson, in Erbil on Thursday.

In the meeting, Barzani and Bryson-Richardson also discussed reform of the Kurdistan Region’s Peshmerga forces, the continued threats posed by the Islamic State group, and the importance of implementing the Sinjar agreement between Baghdad and Erbil a year ago.
