Baghdad requires Kurdistan to cancel the referendum results and return the money for oil

11
The leadership of Iraqi Kurdistan spreads a message of readiness to conduct direct negotiations with official Baghdad. Earlier, many countries of the world, including Russia and the United States, spoke at the beginning of such negotiations. However, it turns out that the Iraqi authorities refuse to contact the representatives of Erbil, calling those accomplices of separatist sentiments.


Recall that the sharp deterioration in relations between Baghdad and Iraqi Kurdistan occurred after the referendum. Kurds by a majority vote in favor of independence from Iraq. Hostilities broke out in Kirkuk, which quickly stopped, as the Kurdish troops actually abandoned further armed resistance. However, the Iraqi army did not advance further than the city taken under its full control, including under pressure from the so-called international community.

Turkish News Agency Anadolu quotes a statement from Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi:
Dialogue with regional authorities, including Barzani (leader of Iraqi Kurdistan, note “VO”), is possible only if the conditions for canceling the referendum results are met, and also after the transfer of control over all checkpoints and airports to the Iraqi authorities in the direction of revenues from oil sales in the state budget. We insist that the Peshmerga (armed Kurdish troops) return to the region’s borders.

It should be noted that the Supreme Court of Iraq previously declared the referendum in Kurdistan unconstitutional.

    It’s hard for the Kurds now. There is no access to the sea. The so-called Kurdistan is located on the territory of four states: Iran, Iraq, Syria and Turkey. If they agree among themselves, write is gone. And the main ally - "mattresses" - will set up and do not frown.

      The fact of the matter is that they don’t agree. Turkey and Iran mark regional leaders, Iraq under American control, Syria is building politics with an eye on Russia ...

    as well as in the direction of revenues from the sale of oil to the state budget. We insist that the Peshmerga (armed Kurdish units) return to the borders of the region.
    That's where the dog rummaged.

    The Kurds need to send the United States away and cram into loyal subjects of Assad without any autonomy there. Otherwise, they are so piled on all sides that they will search for the “fifth corner”.

      The Americans somehow did not really support their will. You can bow to the Turks, but for the Kurds it will mean death or back to bow to Baghdad, Damascus.
      It seems that the time of Kurdistan has not come yet

        finally, from 4 countries the best living conditions for the Kurds are in Turkey, this applies to incomes, access to medicine and education, etc. etc.
        as for Iraqi Kurdistan, while the barzans were friends with Erdogan and listened to him, everything was normal with them. they were recommended to them not to show off with a referendum in a friendly manner - they did not listen.

      Purely, Assad needs to get rid of the barmalei and the felons, and cover the oil fields from the new Barmalean wave. He needs allies within the country to maintain order and autocracy. In Iraq, the Kurds pulled up with their referendum and entered into military control with the authorities, that is, they passed a certain point of no return, that is, even if they sit quieter than water and try to squeeze or crush them below the grass. I won’t even talk about Turkey - everything is clear there. There remains Syria, where they can still turn the situation in their favor - all the same refrained from clashes with government forces, and demand is possible for their services.
