On June 30, 2014, the Dinu Patriciu Eurasia Center hosted a private dinner for a delegation from Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) consisting of H.E. Fuad Hussein, Chief of Staff to the President, and H.E. Falah Mustafa Bakir, Head of the Department of Foreign Affairs.

Topics of discussion were the current political and security situation in Iraq, the likelihood of ISIS’ survival, the fight against ISIS, formation of the Iraqi government, and the future of the Kurdish region and Iraq. The Kurdish delegation emphasized, among other things, that ISIS is an international terrorist organization with aspirations to grow and seize more land, and without international support, ISIS will likely continue to win ground in Iraq and survive.
