The Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK), which has historical ties with the Supreme Islamic Council in Iraq and over the past years and throughout the years of struggle and through various stations, was in the same trench against the oppression and tyranny of the Baathist regime, as well as in the construction of a new Iraq, and they were the same on many issues. We are keen to develop fraternal relations between us.
Once again, we congratulate you and wish you continued success.
