Kurdistan Regional Government President Massoud Barzani has commenced his foreign tour to hold talks with a number of world leaders, including the US president Barrack Obama!

His accompanying delegation consists of: Masroor Barzani, KDP’s intelligence chief; Qubad Talabani, KRG representative to the US; Falah Mustafa, the Head of the Department of Foreign Relations; Ashti Hawrami, Minister of Natural Resources, Hersh Muharam and Feud Hussain and few advisors to KRG.

President Barzani and his delegation arrived in Bulgaria on Thursday where they held talks with Bulgarian Prime Minister, President and the Head of Parliament on various topics. They were extended a warm reception.

President Barzani’s next destination will be Hungary, and later he is due to set off to the U.S.

The main purpose of this visit is described as seeking to further expand and intensify Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) relations and cooperation with foreign countries.

President Barzani has uniformly advocated Kurdish independence right. Most recently, on the occasion of Kurdish “ Newroz” year, he assured his people that in a near future he would announce an independent Kurdistan state.

Concurrently, the annual Arab summit meeting is being held in the Iraqi capital Baghdad Thursday ( March 29) . It is headed by Kurdish President Jalal Talabani.

Both Kurdish Presidents hold a peerless opportunity to broach Kurdish independence case in two very historic meetings.

Barzani will also meet President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, a strong advocate of Kurdish self-government, and numerous senior key US officials face-to face.

If Kurdish leaders truly imply what they sloganeer, then this is the most appropriate time to corroborate it.

Kurdish citizens are impatiently looking forward to hearing the good news that President Barzani has vowed!
