The British Ambassador to Iraq, Mark Bryson-Richardson, attended the meeting.
The presidency said both sides discussed the outstanding issues between the federal and the Kurdish governments, the political and economic situation of Iraq and Kurdistan, the Region's elections, the oil and gas law, the Iraqi national budget law, the relations between Iraq and the Kurdistan Region with neighboring countries, the war in Ukraine, and other issues of common interests.
