Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu met with leader of Iraq's Turkmen population as part of his visit on Thursday to the northern Iraqi city of Kirkuk.

"The most important constituent of this city of peace are Turkmen. And this constituent will never cease to exist," Davutoglu told a joint press appearance with Ersat Salihi, leader of the Iraqi Turkmen Front or ITF, after a bilateral meeting.

Davutoglu received a warm welcome at the ITF headquarters as viewers chanted "Long live Davutoglu," and "Kirkuk is Turk and it will remain Turk."

"This is the day we have united with Kirkuk. For the first time in 75 years, a Turkish foreign minister visits Kirkuk. This is a historic day," Davutoglu said.
