PUK Co-Leader considered the unification of the Peshmarga forces as an important step and pledged PUK's support for succeeding the process of unifying the military units. "In this important and national process, PUK is passionate about building a strong and well trained military which can reflect contemporary demands, and the forces shall be united on the grounds of national, partnership and balanced power."

Regarding the security vaccum in some parts of Iraq and Syria, and the movements of ISIS remnants, Bafel Talabani said "If the plans were not changed and supports were not expanded, some parts that have security issues would face terrorists' threats."
