BREAKING NEWS: Kurds to Participate in New Baghdad Government with Five Ministers.

Hemin Salih
BasNews, Erbil

As the new government of Baghdad is being formed, Kurds are ready to participate and have gained a number of important posts, including five top Ministry positions.

The added participation does not come without comprise, though: The Kurdistan Regional Government is to accept a number of stipulations in order to have added participation.

The KRG has been asked to negotiate on the oil case, budget, Peshmerga salary, weapons and the very delicate subject of Article 140 of the Iraqi constitution, which outlines the rights of the autonomous region. Gorran MP in Baghdad Kawa Mohammed told BasNews that it is important to take the formation of the new government of Baghdad very seriously because the Kurdistan Region has had many problems with the previous government in regards to oil, budget, the Peshmerga salary and disputed territories.

The Kurds themselves ask to have at least five ministers in the new government based on the latest parliamentary elections of Iraq: the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) will have two ministers; the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) will have two representatives and one minister from Gorran (Change Movement). Smaller Kurdish parties that have a more religious vein will occupy slightly lesser posts.

The head of the KDP list in Baghdad Parliament is Ardalan Noreldin, who exclusively told BasNews that there are a few high profile posts among the ministries that Kurdish leadership must insist on representing. He speculates that Kurds should push for at least one of the Finance Ministry, Oil Ministry and Foreign Relations Ministry.

“The Deputy Prime Minister must be for Kurds, but so far no one has been chosen for this post that was previously held by a KDP representative. It is expected to be given to KDP again,” added Noreldin.

“Kurds have to focus on getting the Foreign Relations Minister post, then attempt to have part of the Oil and Natural Resources in order to defend the Kurdistan Region’s oil policy.” said Nouri.

“A list from the Kurdistan Region must be created and sent to Baghdad where Kurds can clearly outline their requests and demands.

Moreover, the demands should be tightened to a limited time to be implemented and given to the new Iraqi PM,” concluded Nouri.

Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari has recently given an interview with Rudaw English discussing his hopes for a new Iraqi government that can improve the relations between Baghdad and the Kurdish Regional Government.
Despite a joint Kurdish–Iraq security operation to re-take Mosul dam with US air cover (initially reported as being solely Kurdish) relations between Baghdad and Erbil remain strained.
Hoshyar Zebari is himself Kurdish Iraqi, and he was speaking as Kurdish ministers make their way to Baghdad for the formation of the new Iraqi cabinet.
Zebari’s political career nearly ended at the close of Maliki’s tenure as PM when multiple Kurdish ministers left Baghdad in protest over an ongoing dispute over oil revenues.
These tensions continue as the KRG recently made a second sale of oil independent of Iraq’s State Oil Marketing Company.
Zebari remarked that he was hopeful that new Iraqi PM Haider al-Abadi was substantively different from his predecessor and that the Kurds were ready to re-join a constructive political process.
This tallies with some analysts’ perceptions of Abadi as being far more conciliatory than Maliki. On the foreign relations of Iraq, Zebari mentioned that contrary to popular belief, the Gulf States are now firmly against ISIS, who perceive it as their number one threat.

The Italian government has joined Germany and France in saying they are preparing to send arms and other assistance to both Kurdish aligned forces and the federal government of Iraq in Baghdad.
The move follows a visit to Iraq by Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, who announced on his return that Italy was now considering arms transfers. EU leaders and ministers have recently been meeting to discuss approaches to the Iraq crisis, with French President Francois Hollande recently proposing an international conference.
Italian Defense Minister went further, suggesting light automatic weapons, in addition to stockpiles of arms captured during the Balkans conflict, were being considered for the first shipment.

French President Francois Hollande has called for an international conference to discuss new strategies to counter the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL).
It is not the first time such an idea has been discussed, with counter-terrorism expert David Kilcullen suggesting a repeat of the WW2 ARCADIA conference, only this time aimed at combating terror.
ARCADIA was a WW2 conference of leaders and military experts held in 1941 to devise a strategy to defeat the Nazis. Hollande remarked,
“We can no longer keep to the traditional debate of intervention or non-intervention,” Hollande told Le Monde newspaper in remarks published on Wednesday.We have to come up with a global strategy to fight this group, which is structured, has significant financing, very sophisticated weapons and threatens countries like Iraq, Syria and Lebanon.”

The Sea Triumph, an oil carrier chartered by LITASCO (LUKOIL‘s international marketing and trading arm) has departed the port of Basra in Southern Iraq with the first batch of oil as part of the recovery of LUKOIL’s costs from the West Qurna-2 project.
The shipment volume amounts to 1 million barrels of oil. The vessel is headed for the port of Augusta, Sicily. After being unloaded, the oil will be transported to LUKOIL’s ISAB refinery in Priolo for processing.
Production at the West Qurna-2 field currently exceeds 280 thousand barrels per day. The project’s development is on schedule with LUKOIL successfully fulfilling all of its contractual obligations.

Arthur Great to see how many have now come to see how this event is and always has been about the country of Iraq and their political and economic stability per the CBI/AOP…They are now in the process of undoing all the corruption of the former regime. How long that will take can only be guessed but mine would be not extremely long from what I am hearing from sources that are involved in that process among other things. And then there is the factional haggling that is being done regarding all the amendments and adjustments to the current budget which has to have the HCL already in it.

The Iraqi government has announced that security forces have reclaimed the K3 Refinery in Haditha. The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) had occupied the facility and expelled its staff from the area.
Security officials announced that they had killed a number of militants and were now inspecting the facility prior to allowing workers and engineers back onsite.
Haditha has been the site of fierce fighting, located north west of Ramadi, and the town has seen local Sunni fighters battle alongside Shi’a dominated government army units.
However, due to Haditha’s location near ISIL controlled Ninewa province and Iraq’s dangerous western desert, some officials worry the town may yet fall to ISIL.
Haditha is also the site of a key dam (pictured)*downstream of the recently recaptured Mosul dam. According to*The Wall Street Journal*some US officials are considering air strikes to help secure Haditha dam.
The recapture of the refinery is crucial since the facility provides the province with petroleum products ranging from natural gas to fuel oil.

The Canadian government has confirmed that they have two cargo planes operational to assist in the transfer of arms and supplies to Iraqi Kurdish forces.
Canadian Foreign Minister John Baird (pictured)*went as far as to endorse US air strikes against the “brutal” ISIS:
“Canada supports all efforts, including United States supply drops and air strikes, to protect civilians from ISIS terrorists. We continue to stand with those who support the Iraqi people, including the Kurdish Peshmerga soldiers who are bravely fighting this brutal terrorism.”
Canada has also pledged $5 million of humanitarian aid to help those displaced by the crisis.
