Kirkuk's governor, Abdul Rahman Mustafa, met with the chief of the provincial reconstruction team (PRT), Fletcher Burton, to discuss security, economic and service developments in the region.
The governor assured Mr Fletcher that the security situation was good and stable, as evidenced by the completion of projects in Kirkuk and the improvement of services to its citizens.
The administration is keen to complete large important projects in Kirkuk, such as building hospitals and implementing water projects, and is discussing with central government in Baghdad regarding all of these issues.
The electricity crisis was also discussed, and it was recognised that this is a problem throughout the country, which needs considerable investment to solve.
