KRG Council of Ministers Secretary Amanj Raheem issued a statement posted to his Facebook page saying the council has adopted the project, which was structured in consultation with military advisors from the U.S, the U.K. and Germany. “The Ministry of Peshmerga will become a modern and trusted ministry [which will be apart] from politics”, Raheem added. The head of the Peshmerga Ministry’s Culture and Media Office, Halgurd Hikmat, said on Saturday that a new body was suggested for the Peshmerga Ministry by the Coalition forces and the joint Peshmerga committee.
