On 19 March 2024, Masrour Barzani, Prime Minister of the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG), met with Tobias Lindner, Minister of State at the Federal Foreign Office in Germany.
During their discussions, Minister Lindner reaffirmed Germany's steadfast support for the Peshmerga forces and emphasised the importance of fostering cooperation and coordination with the Kurdistan Region.
