Prime Minister Barzani’s message on the inauguration of France’s new President, Emmanuel Macron

On behalf of the people and Government of the Kurdistan Region, I extend my congratulations to the new President of France, Emmanuel Macron, on the occasion of his election and inauguration.

His victory represents high expectation and hope for millions of people across France and further consolidation of the foundation of the European Union.

President Macron’s election also represents optimism for promoting international peace and stability.

As President Macron placed the eradication of terrorism among his top priorities, the Kurdistan Region, being at the forefront in this war, looks forward to further strengthen its political and military cooperation with France, in order to achieve peace and stability in a volatile Middle East.

Recalling the historical relations between our two peoples, where France generously offered assistance to relieve the extreme distress of the people of Kurdistan during the last century, we hope to further develop our bilateral relations under his presidency.

I take this opportunity to pay tribute to the outgoing President, François Hollande, whose term marked successful international policy and strong relations with the Kurdistan Region.

I extend my best wishes to the people of France and President Emmanuel Macron.

Nechirvan Barzani,
Prime Minister,
Kurdistan Regional Government
