BAGHDAD / Aswat al-Iraq: Kurdish leader Masoud Barzani warned against the policies practiced against the Kurds in the disputed areas during his meeting with the U.S.
A Kurdish presidency statement said today that Barzani received US ambassador James Jeffrey and the commander of the international alliance in Iraq.
During the meeting, the latest political and security issues were discussed, as well as security ministerial posts and the withdrawal of the U.S.
The statement added that both sides stressed the importance of "abiding by the agreements reached to fill the ministerial posts and the Higher National Strategic Council as agreed."
Ambassador Jeffrey confirmed that Barzani should directly interfere to solve pending questions among the political entities.
Both sides tackled the questions of cut off areas in Diala province which led to the decrease of Kurdish representation there.
For the last few months, Diala province has been suffering greater tension due to the threats committed against the Kurdish population there and their immigration to Kurdish region.
In two sessions, the Kurdish parliament discussed these conflicts, calling to take steps to stop these actions.
