Tribute to Jalal Talabani

"Jalal Talabani was a hugely respected figure, whose political career spans more than half a century. I met him often both in Iraq and London and found him always a source of wisdom, determination and humanity. He had the best interests of his people at heart and helped steer Iraq through turbulent times both as a leader of the Kurdish people and as President of Iraq. He will be mourned by many people in Iraq and abroad."
