Shafaq News/ The President of Kurdistan, Nechirvan Barzani, received today, Wednesday, a joint high-level delegation from the White House, US departments of State and Defense, in the capital of the Region, Erbil.

The delegation included the counselor of the United States Department of State Derek Chollet, the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense (DASD) for the Middle East Dana Stroul, Acting Assist Secretary Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs Joey Hood, and the White House Coordinator for the Middle East and North Africa Bret McGurk, among other officials in the US administration, US embassy in Baghdad, and US consulate-General in Erbil.
