After experiencing a military coordination between the Iraqi government and the Kurdistan region as a positive development over the past months, especially the support of the province to the Iraqi army in front of inebriated Qayyarah, in preparation for the Liberation of Nineveh province, he returned Relations are strained in the wake of a statement to the Defence Minister Khaled al – Obeidi , and the leaders of a number of militias, targeting the role of the Peshmerga forces . Obeidi said he refuses to enter the city of Mosul, peshmerga forces to participate in the editing, though Iraqi forces with high probability to engage the militias will be so. Lord region the words of al-Obeidi, threatened to halt cooperation and coordination with the army, refusing to be a decision to participate in the battle of Baghdad, Mosul, however.
The Iraqi defense minister, who does not have the already broad powers in the leadership of the battles on the ground, had said from the United States, during his participation in a meeting of defense ministers of participating in the international coalition countries, he refuses to enter the peshmerga into the city of Mosul (400 km north of Baghdad) during participation in the liberation battles. While opening the door to enter the militias, saying that the decision to post the militias affiliated to the “popular crowd” is contained and is up to the Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi, is known as the other limited impact on the armed militias that up to more than fifty-faction.
This explains the words of al-Obeidi, about the involvement of militias in the battle for the position that support the militias against the desire of the Kurdistan region and much of the Sunni leadership, which refuses to engage the militias for fear of a repeat of the many violations carried out by the “popular crowd” in Anbar, Salahuddin and areas of Baghdad belt.
Moral of the Secretary of Defense statement is not known, although it would like sending a political message from Baghdad to the Kurdistan region after a positive morale boost received by the region following the signing of the US Department of Defense official note is the first of the territory with any US destination. And included a note that was signed on July 12 current and clear signals to the essential role of the peshmerga forces in the liberation of the province of Nineveh battles and address of the “Islamic State” (Daash), set forth in that of preparing the troops and arming and financing the salaries and equipment, and like any narrowing of Baghdad on the role of the Peshmerga in Nineveh battles to put that note in the re-evaluation of the position.
A statement from the Ministry of Peshmerga released on Sunday, in response to the words of al-Obeidi and the official statement of the Ministry of Defense about the battle of Mosul and the Kurdish role in which: “It was a peshmerga will take part in the battle paid Mali, with the consent of the Iraqi army and withdraw the behest army, the right is that the Peshmerga forces will withdraw from the liberated areas during operations edit Nineveh, according to a timetable, and consensus between the governments of the province and Baghdad, this does not mean that the peshmerga will withdraw from the areas liberated during the past two years, but the withdrawal process will include only the city of Mosul. “
Kurdistan and threatened in a statement to stop the coordination and cooperation with the Iraqi army due to receive treatment, she said she was “not up to the level of sacrifices.” She said that the Iraqi Ministry of Defense published a statement in which it pointed out that the Peshmerga forces will take part in the battle to liberate the city of Mosul in exchange for financial support and will withdraw from the sites be introduced at the behest of the Iraqi army, “You should know all the parties that the peshmerga gun is not for rent and that their participation in the fighting made a decision of the Kurdish people and not at the behest of any other party. “

In the latest development in a series of tensions between Baghdad and Kurdistan, The President of the Kurdistan region, Massoud Barzani, displeasure of dealing “inappropriate by the Iraqi government about the peshmerga, and the indifference of the coalition countries regarding the participation of the Kurdistan region delegation in the meeting held in Washington to counter-terrorism conference.” A statement of the presidency of the region for Barzani as saying during a meeting with a delegation from the US Embassy in Baghdad: “While the peshmerga were fundamental force in the war against terrorists in Daash in the past two years, will remain the troops sacrificed bravely Boruahha, has been able to break down and defeat the terrorists Daash defense of land and dignity The Supreme people and human values, without giving them any financial support from any party. “ “The peshmerga fighting for decades for a just cause and to protect this country and can not be valuing a drop of blood of any member of the peshmerga anything was.”
In an attempt to contain the tension, spokesman for the Ministry of Peshmerga, Jabbar Yawar, that al-Obeidi’s remarks were transferred incorrectly. Yawar said in a press statement: “He did not say he would not allow the participation of the peshmerga liberalization processes Mosul,” he said, adding: “There are political parties are trying to prevent the participation of the peshmerga in the battle of Mosul, fearing its survival into the connector after its liberation.”
In conjunction with attempts to curtail the role of the Peshmerga, political parties in Baghdad sought to highlight the role of the militias, “the popular crowd,” as it calls for a lot of influential politicians need to engage those militias in the Battle of Mosul. The leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr, has ordered for “Peace Brigades” of him, to go to the north to fight the “Daash” south of Mosul. Military spokesman militia “League of the Righteous,” Jawad Tlabawi he said, in a statement, said that “factions of the popular crowd the battle of liberation of Mosul involvement will help to accelerate the achievement of victory and will miss the opportunity to greedy land of Mosul.” He warned “against the approval of the involvement of the peshmerga battle of liberation of Mosul.”
In practice is most effective in ground combat peshmerga compared Iraqi forces, has fought many battles against the militants, “Daash” was able to recover through which large areas of insurgents in the north of the city of Mosul. And it led those successes peshmerga forces to surround the city of Mosul on both sides of the east and north, and stand at distances ranging between 15 and 40 kilometers from the city, while separating the Iraqi Army and Mosul front of the South more than 70 kilometers. And he led the Peshmerga battles with “Daash” to undergo areas classified as being disputed northern Nineveh, for the management of the Kurdistan region, and refuse the territory ceded after the expulsion of “Daash” process.
