UK Relations with Kurdistan


Jason led a Westminster Hall debate on the UK’s relations with the Kurdistan region of Iraq. As an RAF Officer Jason served on the No Fly Zone over Northern Iraq in the 1990s protecting the Iraqi Kurds from Saddam Hussein. He returned to the Kurdistan Region last summer to see a peaceful, progressive and democratic society. In the debate closer economic, educational and diplomatic ties were urged. In November the inaugural event of the Huddersfield University Kurdish alumni took place in Erbil as 130 Kurdish students have studied at our local University.
