The officials agreed to work together "to strengthen the intelligence capabilities and military movements of the Peshmerga through both important intelligence institutions and military movements in order to curb enemy schemes."
Outgoing US Col. Todd Burroughs, Deputy Director of the US-led coalition's Military Advisor Group North, told Kurdistan 24 in an exclusive interview on Monday that the Peshmerga increased their capability and competition "in the information environment; and vastly increased their conduct and reporting of framework, clearance, and joint security operations to defeat Daesh (ISIS)."
"I am eager to see a unified force under the Ministry of Peshmerga; enabled by a professional, operational command and control structure; capable of conducting planned, coordinated, and synchronized independent and joint operations; maintaining and sustaining their capabilities through carefully established systems and processes; and leveraging the information environment to set conditions for unprecedented successes," he said.
