President Barzani and Australian Ambassador Stress Impact of Scrapping Component Quotas on Partnership and Coexistence

In a diplomatic rendezvous at the Salahaddin Resort today, President Masoud Barzani welcomed Australian Ambassador Glenn Miles for discussions on strengthening bilateral ties between Australia and the Kurdistan Region.

Ambassador Miles commended the robust relationship between Australia and Kurdistan, underscoring the importance of further consolidating these ties.

The meeting delved into the imminent challenges posed by the upcoming elections scheduled for June 10 in Kurdistan. Of particular concern was the difficulty of conducting parliamentary elections without the comprehensive participation of all ethnic components. President Barzani emphasized the critical role of component quotas in fostering partnership and coexistence within Kurdistan's political framework. The absence of such representation, he highlighted, could jeopardize the inclusivity and integrity of the electoral process.

Addressing the issue of the continued presence of international coalition forces in Iraq, President Barzani reiterated its significance as a national imperative, emphasizing the collective responsibility of all components in safeguarding against the resurgence of terrorism.

The discussions underscored the shared commitment of both Kurdistan and Australia to foster enduring diplomatic relations and navigate the complex challenges facing the region.
