The president of the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) received the head of Al-Wataniyah (Patriotic) bloc in the Saladin resort near the capital of the Kurdistan region, Erbil, earlier today.

Barzani and Allawi "agreed to support Mohammad Shiyaa al-Sudani for forming an Iraqi government that meets the people's aspirations."
The readout said that the incoming cabinet shall prioritize "combating corruption, ending political sectarianism and quota, address the Baghdad-Erbil disputes, establish a panel of the wise, and lay the foundations of an early election with a new law and electoral commission."
The meeting also touched on the repeated attacks against the Kurdistan region's land, the readout said.
Allawi dismissed these offensives as a "violation and jeopardy to Iraq's sovereignty", calling for taking all the necessary measures to prevent their recurrence.
