美国赞扬马苏德·巴尔扎尼决定辞去伊拉克库尔德斯坦地区总统职务。

美国国务院发言人希瑟·诺尔特星期一发表声明说:“巴尔扎尼是他的人民的历史性人物和勇敢的领袖,最近参加了我们摧毁‘伊斯兰国’的共同战斗。这一决定体现了一位国务活动家在艰难时期的风范。”

声明呼吁伊拉克和库尔德地区政府“抓紧努力,按照伊拉克宪法解决悬而未决的问题” 。

在巴尔扎尼宣布辞职一天后,伊拉克总理海德尔·阿巴尼呼吁伊拉克北部的库尔德斯坦地区保持平静,尊重法纪。

他说,巴格达的中央政府希望在每一个省都建立起安全的环境,并保护每一位公民的利益。

US Commends Kurdish Leader Barzani for Stepping Down

The United States is commending Masoud Barzani's decision to step down from his position as president of Iraq’s Kurdistan region.

"President Barzani is a historic figure and courageous leader of his people, most recently in our common fight to destroy ISIS.” State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert said in a statement Monday. “This decision represents an act of statesmanship during a difficult period."

The statement called on Iraq and Kurdish Regional Government to "work urgently to resolve pending issues under the Iraq constitution".

Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi called for calm and respect for the law in the northern Kurdistan region, a day after Barzani announced he was stepping down.

He said the central government in Baghdad wants to establish safe conditions in every province and protect the interests of every citizen.
