PM Speech to Kurdistan Parliament on new KRG cabinet
I’m very pleased that my colleagues and I were swore in today, after winning the trust and confidence of this parliament.
Thanks to the sacrifices of our people and the bravery of our Peshmerga heroes, we have been able to form this new cabinet of the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG). The cabinet's formulation is additional evidence of Kurdistan’s strong commitment to democracy and the peaceful transfer of power to this region.
