President Barzani expressed gratitude to the British Ambassador and Government for their support and sympathy. He conveyed thanks on behalf of the Kurdish people and the families affected by the Erbil tragedy.

He asserted that such attacks would not break the will of the Kurdish people but rather strengthen it.

During the meeting, President Barzani highlighted the commitment to balanced and friendly relations, expressing opposition to tension and the deterioration of relations with any country.
