 In a letter to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Sunday, Barzani emphasized that Iran has always been a good supporter and defender of the Kurds in practice.

He further added that ever since the beginning of the ISIL threat and the emergence of the refugee crisis, the continuous flow of Iranian relief, food, and medical aid for the Iraqi Kurdistan region has been a great blessing for the Iraqi Kurds.
