Building strong UK/Kurdistan links

Thursday, October 7, 2010

On her recent visit to the Kurdistan Region of Iraq Meg was pleased to meet again Dr. Barham Salih, the region’s Prime Minister. They discussed proposals the Westminster Foundation for Democracy is developing with the Kurdistan Parliament to assist the parliamentarians and staff. Dr Salih also mentioned his belief that there is a need for training for politicians and journalists to help them develop a free and ethical media in the region.


Dr. Salih, who was himself educated at Cardiff and Liverpool Universities, was due to announce later that day a multimillion dollar fund for Kurdish students to study overseas including in the UK. The fund is part of the Kurdish Government’s plan to ensure that the region’s younger generation become well educated and able to build a democratic and vibrant society.  


Meg said:


"I was delighted to be able to meet again the Kurdistan Prime Minister. He emphasised to me the great warmth felt by the people of the Kurdistan region for Britain, and their desire to build and strengthen links between our two people’s.


He was also keen to talk about the political situation in the UK which he follows closely.”
