Iraqi Kurds have requested humanitarian aid from Russia to assist refugees and support for Peshmerga troops, the head of the foreign department of Kurdistan’s Regional Government (KRG), Falah Mustafa Bakir, said.
"We’ve made a request to support the Peshmerga forces, who have been fighting against terrorism, namely ISIL, for more than two years. Many fighters have lost their lives during the fight," RT cited Bakir as saying.
"We have requested humanitarian aid to support the refugees who came to Iraqi Kurdistan from other parts of the country, as well as Syria," he added.
Bakir arrived in Moscow to discuss a range of problems in Iraq, particularly the challenge of combating terrorism in Iraq and Syria. He met with the Russian Deputy Foreign Minister and Special Presidential Representative for the Middle East and North Africa Mikhail Bogdanov.
