 ERBIL, Kurdistan Region - Kurdish Prime Minister Nechirvan Barzani discussed the fight against the self-styled Islamic State (ISIS) and the ongoing crisis in the region in Turkey  on Sunday with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu.

Upon his visit to Turkey, Barzani met with Erdogan in Istanbul, a Turkish presidential source said.

According to that source the primary discussion between Barzani and the Turkish president was the fight against the ISIS and other recent events in the region.

Barzani has also met Turkish premier Davutoglu in private, what exactly they discussed remains unclear.

Erbil and Ankara enjoy strong economic ties, the trade between the them is estimated to be worth billions.

The last visit by Barzani to Turkey dates back to December 2015 when he met Davutoglu for talks on the regional situation and bilateral relations between Erbil and Ankara.

After all what the Turkish government is doing to the Kurds, it is shameful to meet Turkish rules and give them legitimacy. I don't care what Barzani says, it is unacceptable to have relations with a government that is committing war crimes against Kurds.

Really? Mr. PM, you do realize Erdogan openly prefers Isis over the Kurds right? Smh. No wonder we are not independent. Forget being polite to Turkey. Have some dignity. Peshmergas are dying because of this man.

Notice how they didn't dare publish this news in rudaws kurdish section, they know how the kurdish people feel about turkey. They also never link PKK to terrorists or call Northern Kurdistan "Turkey's south east" in the kurdish section, it's like two complete different news sites.

"what exactly they discussed remains unclear." Nothing a certain ruling family does is open or clear, we don't know how much of Kurdistan they've given away to Turkey. They must think they're the Kurdish royal family.
