There was a plan to destabilize Kurdistan — President Barzani

There was a plan to destabilize Kurdistan — President Barzani

The KRG's report focuses on the 2005 constitution's preamble, which in its final sentence states, "adherence to this Constitution preserves for Iraq its free union of people, of land, and of sovereignty".

Canada's special operations troops have put a temporary hold on their training of Iraqi and Kurdish forces in the wake of escalating fighting between the two factions.

Those are what led many Kurds to flee Iraq for Tennessee and to work with the American government through two wars.

In a televised address on Sunday, he spoke of betrayal. He blamed the quick Kurdish retreat from the majority of the disputed areas on "treason", saying Kirkuk was handed over to the Iraqis. Some members of the mob attacked local journalists covering Parliament.

As it has done historically, the KRG provides the US with strategic depth in a country that is becoming increasingly dominated by actors hostile to its engagements and values. If Washington is serious about wanting stability in Iraq, it has to repair its relations with the Kurds.

"Changing the law on the presidency of Kurdistan or prolonging the presidential term is not acceptable", it said.

Since it is unclear when new presidential elections can be held, Barzani does not have an obvious successor. But the wording itself - particularly the Arabic original - is so vague that it is essentially devoid of meaning. But his rhetoric of defiance is now also entwined with bitterness. They waved placards and honked car horns.

The remaining disputed territories are subsumed in larger provinces and less likely to be able to transform into regions of their own, requiring a purely political solution.

But others make pragmatic acknowledgment of the uncertainty that lies ahead. Abadi may not even be in office this time next year.

As a child, Peyman Noman was forced out of northern Iraq with her family.

Several protesters brought up that relationship. Opposition lawmakers who had been barricaded inside managed to leave later, according to their parties.

Baghdad also used chemical weapons against the village of Halabja, killing 5,000 people. The KDP controlled the north of the region up to the Turkish border while the PUK controlled the southeast, up to the Iranian border. There are strong independence movements in each of these countries, most prominently in Turkey, where Abdullah Ocalan established the PKK, whose main aim is an #Independent Kurdish State in Turkey.

Mr Barzani turned to his nemesis Saddam for help to push back Mr Talabani's forces.

Masoud Barzani's separatist referendum last month prompted a military response by the Baghdad government, ultimately leading to his political downfall.

After the US-led invasion that toppled Saddam in 2003, Mr Barzani became a central figure in the drive to create an autonomous Kurdish state in northern Iraq.

Massoud Barzani's father, Mustafa Barzani, spent decades working for Kurdish independence in Iraq and Iran.

Since then, Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei praised the Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF), also known as the Hashd al-Shaabi, for their involvement in the fight against "terrorists and their supporters", calling them the "secret" for Iraq's recent victories. Abadi so humiliated him that he had to step down.
