A Statement from Kurdistan Region Presidency

- 21 October 2019

The US-led coalition forces have played a major role in protecting and assisting the people of the Kurdistan Region, starting from establishing no-fly zone in 1991, toppling the Ba’ath regime in 2003, to defeating ISIS terror group in the past few years.

They have fought and bled alongside the Peshmerga forces in defending the Kurdistan Region.
We understand the high emotions of our people but the appreciation for the role and contribution of the coalition forces, especially the United States military, should not be affected by undesirable political decisions.

The Kurdistan Region reiterates its appreciation to the US-led coalition forces and our continued partnership in the fight against ISIS.
