MOSCOW, April 25. /TASS/. Iraqi Kurds are grateful to Russia for its support and look forward to Moscow’s continued support in combating terrorism, member of the Leadership Council of the Kurdistan Democratic Party (Iraq) Hemin Hawrami told a news conference on Monday.
"Relations with Russia are very important for us. We share common values and common views on many issues, including on the situation in Iraq, Syria and the fight against Islamic State [IS, extremist organization outlawed in Russia - TASS] terrorists," he said. "We are grateful to Russia for its military support and hope that your country will continue rendering assistance to us, including in the fight against the IS."
According to him, the Iraqi Kurds "need good coordination with Russia on the Middle East issues." "We need coordination for a better understanding of what is going on in the region," Hawrami said.
He noted that the delegation of the Kurdish politicians had held meetings with the political leadership of the United Russia party and spoke in favor of developing inter-parliamentary ties. Representatives of the Kurdistan Democratic Party discussed in Moscow, in particular, the fight against terrorism and economic investment.
Hawrami added that the Iraqi Kurds realized that "terrorism was a threat to the existence of Kurdistan as such." "We support all those ready to fight against the IS and will accept any help and support," he said.
Speaking about the role of regional countries in solving the problem of terrorism in the Middle East, he said that "none of the countries in the Middle East was immune to IS activities," adding that "one couldn’t score political points at the expense of combating terrorism."
