ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – Kurdish President Masoud Barzani, US Vice President Joe Biden and Iraq’s Parliament Speaker Salim al-Jabouri are expected to be in Ankara this week, where they will meet with the country’s top officials.

 

According to information obtained by Rudaw, Barzani will be in Ankara on Tuesday, where he will meet with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Prime Minister Binali Yildirim. Biden is arriving Wednesday and Jabouri will also be in Turkey at the same time.

 

Barzani’s last visit to Turkey was in December 2015 where he met his counterpart Erdogan and the former prime minister Ahmet Davutoglu to discuss bilateral relations.

Mr: President please don't back down from Kurdistan independence,and don't believe any promises from Turkey, Iraq or others to postpone referendum in Kurdistan. The Western countries are on our side no one will dear to attack us. Mr President please don't back down from independence this opportunity will never come back. Turkey, Iraq and others will promise you anything just to deceive you and destroy Kurdish dream of being a free nation

Wonder what is being cooked here. Probably Russians moving into Iran is worrying Washington! Sunnis and Kurds in Iraq and Erdogan of Turkey are probably getting assurances from US.

Hopefully not a divide and conquer strategy against Kurds! I am sure Mr Barzani knows the history.

Barzani: do not trust them, they will never replace Turkey with the Kurds. Erdogan has West's balls in his hands, and the West is ready to do anything to please Erdogan. DECLARE INDEPENDENCE

I am Turkish and believe most of the leaders and people in this region (Turkey, Iran, Iraq, Syria) are stupid. Why ? Because we let US and Russia to discuss and decide our future. Hope one day, all the US and Russian agents in this region are cleared, and leaders of the communities
