The Kurdistan Regional Government, on Monday, renewed its support for the federal government headed by Adel Abdul Mahdi, expressing hope that it will succeed in meeting the demands of the demonstrators.

"We have witnessed unrest, tensions that accompanied the demonstrations and attempts to derail them," said Safeen Dizaye, head of the Kurdistan Regional Government's foreign relations department, in a speech in Erbil today.

"We support Abdel Mahdi to calm the situation in the country and support his steps in overcoming the current crisis," he said, adding that "it is not possible to hold the prime minister responsible for 15 years of problems and mistakes committed by previous governments."

"I hope that this crisis will be overcome and that the government will meet the demands of the demonstrators to provide services, improve the living conditions and create job opportunities for the unemployed," he said.
