Moscow, Russia ( – Russian President Vladimir Putin received President Barzani in Moscow today for discussions on strengthening bilateral relations and to build on the historical friendship that exists between the people of Russia and the people of Kurdistan.

For his part, President Putin stated that he is aware of the struggle of the Kurdish people and of the struggle of Mulla Mustafa Barzani, President Masoud Barzani’s late father, who lived for several years in exile in Moscow in the 1950s.

President Barzani, together with a high-level Kurdistan Region delegation, arrived in Moscow on Tuesday on an official two-day visit, where he is also due to meet Foreign Minister Lavrov and other Russian government officials.
