On 7 January 2017, the President of the Kurdish-European Society (KES) Kahraman Evsen and board member Devran Ölcer visited the diplomatic representation of the Autonomous Region of Kurdistan (KRG) in the French capital Paris. They were welcomed by Rewan Hussein, who is the head of the office of the chief Kurdish diplomat Ali Dolamari in France. Mr. Dolamari was at the time of the visit on a Kurdistan trip with French President Francois Hollande and could not personally receive the KES delegation.
The KES members presented their goals and projects, to which Mr. Hussein’s showed great interest. He especially welcomed the fact that KES would like to work on a non-partisan basis and ensured the support of the KRG. After a brief visit of the premises with their own library, both sides agreed to maintain relations and to arrange a meeting with the head of the representation Ali Dalamari shortly.
