On the account of its strong presence within the political and humanitarian spheres, Kuwait is playing an integral role within the regional and international domains, said former Foreign Minister of Iraq Hoshyar Zebari Friday.

Speaking to a delegation of Kuwaiti journalists and media personnel, Zebari lauded the strong ties linking Kuwait and Iraq, affirming that Kuwaiti humanitarian contributions especially in the Kurdistan region were strongly admired and respected.

In statements to KUNA, Zebari said that his meeting with the Kuwaiti delegation focused on the political situation in Iraq in addition to recent developments in the region.

Zebari took the chance to laud the relations between Kuwait and Iraq's Kurdistan, saying that the two sides were eager to boost relations in the future.

The former Iraqi Foreign Minister lauded His Highness the Amir of Kuwait Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah's efforts to resolve regional disputes especially the current one pitting several GCC countries plus Egypt against Qatar.

His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah is respected by several Arab and world countries and his role in trying to end the conflict is well appreciated, said Zebari.

The Kuwaiti media delegation consists of several senior journalists and top editors including KUNA's own Deputy Director General of Editorial Sector Affairs and Editor-in-Chief Saad Al-Ali and others. The delegation began its visit to Irbil on August 3.

Meanwhile, Zebari touched on the planned referendum by the Kurdistan region on September 25, which will ask people whether they would rather separate from Iraq or stay within a federal Iraqi system.

The official affirmed that the Kurdistan region would carry on its planned referendum despite the objection of several countries including the US, Iran, Turkey, and others.
The procedure will not affect efforts to battle the so-called Islamic State (IS), he stressed.
