Red Cross Has Been a Time Tested Friend of Kurdistan: PM Barzani

ERBIL — Kurdistan Region Prime Minister Masrour Barzani on Monday met with Peter Maurer, President of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), calling the organization “a time tested friend” of Kurdistan. 

PM Barzani and Maurer discussed the work of the ICRC in Iraq and the Kurdistan Region and emphasized the importance of continued cooperation between the Region and the ICRC in order to aid displaced peoples, particularly those with special needs, according to a press release by the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG). 

“As I told Peter Maurer, President of ICRC, the Red Cross has been a time tested friend. When we can better meet obligations under international law, they encourage us,” PM Barzani wrote on Twitter after the meeting. 

“Now we work together to help locals, refugees and the displaced persons with disability care and physical treatment,” he added. 

The meeting took place on the sidelines of the annual summit of the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos. 

Earlier the day, the Kurdish leader met Sheikh Mohammed bin Hamad Al-Thani, the Qatari Minister of Commerce and Industry, to discuss developing ties between Erbil and Doha, particularly in trade and with an emphasis on the potential benefits to be derived from Qatar’s experience in investment and banking systems. 

While in Davos, PM Barzani will speak during a panel discussion entitled “A New Security Architecture in the Middle East”. He will also hold a series of meetings on the sidelines of the event with senior government officials, businessmen, and economists. 

More than 50 heads of government are expected to attend the World Economic Forum's annual meeting in the Swiss ski resort town of Davos from May 22 to May 26. The World Economic Forum (WEF) said the Annual Meeting 2022 at Davos will focus on 'history at a turning point', the theme of the summit.
