While intensifying conflict between Ankara and Baghdad around Mosul, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi arrived for the first time to Kirkuk, and met with leaders of the popular crowd and the Peshmerga there.
Thursday morning Abadi has arrived in Kirkuk on his first visit since he assumed the post of prime minister. According to a government statement that al-Abadi lose military units and the holding of a meeting of the security and military leadership, and another with the leaders of the Peshmerga forces and the popular crowd in Kirkuk province.
The statement added that al-Abbadi stressed the importance of attention to the local police for the role to be played during the coming period. The statement quoted Ebadi as saying: “We will liberate the people of Hawija and Riyadh and Rashad terrorist gangs and We’ll go soon.”
After the closing of the meeting with the leaders of the Peshmerga forces and the popular crowd went to the village of Bashir al-Abadi Turkmen southern province of Kirkuk, and briefed on the situation and the problems of the citizens.
Come and visit Abadi Friday to Kirkuk, having arrived before him, the leader of the popular crowd and an official of the Badr Organization, Hadi al-Amiri, to discuss the liberalization process of Hawija coordinate with the administration of the province, according to the source of the Badr Organization.
The governor of Kirkuk, Najm al-Din Karim, announced Wednesday, for a joint meeting between the Peshmerga forces and the crowd People’s Liberation spend Hawija, southwest of the province.
Karim said in a statement, “The province of Kirkuk has witnessed a building holding a joint security meeting chaired by the President of the Security Committee Kirkuk governor and the leaders of the popular crowd and the Peshmerga. He added cream that” it is important to edit southwest of Kirkuk speed zones. “
The meeting brought together according to the governor of Kirkuk, both the Secretary General of the Badr Organization, Hadi al-Amiri and Aso Mamend Patriotic Union of Kurdistan organizations official Sheikh Jaafar Sheikh Mustafa commander of forces 70 and the leaders of the Peshmerga hubs in the south of Kirkuk and Daquq, molasses, drunk and the team Shirvan commander of 80 forces and the leaders of the popular crowd north axis. “
Apart from the implications and the importance of reflections visit Abadi of Kirkuk, the Battle of Mosul, which today displays where, according to a military source to bomb targeted a site visited by the southern province of Kirkuk, the Kirkuk is gaining importance of local, regional and international strategy in Iraq, 2003. They are from the disputed areas in the Iraqi constitution and under Article 140 him and that implementation has been delayed since the end of 2007 until today.
It is true that the visit of al-Abadi to Kirkuk prepare for battle Hawija and areas south of Kirkuk, most of them for the battle of Mosul, but that the visit of al-Abadi first to Kirkuk, and the first meeting with the crowd’s leaders and the Peshmerga, may be considered one of the fruits of the agreement held Arbil with Baghdad during the visit of the President of the Kurdistan region to Baghdad a few days ago.
The battle to liberate Hawija and sisters south of Kirkuk may be, which may precede or be a battle of Mosul Bmoisadtha, a dress rehearsal for the first direct coordination of Erbil and Baghdad after the agreement, between the popular crowd and the Peshmerga and the ground between Baghdad and Irbil politically.
With the dispute escalating between Ankara and Baghdad about the battle of Mosul and the parties involved the agenda, and Washington sought to contain the escalation between the parties and not to impede the Battle of Mosul, the question is about the negatives or positives impact of this visit and Altenseeaqbin crowd and the Peshmerga, the role of the PKK, in Hawija, or battles battle of Mosul.
Does this visit will lead the repercussions of direct and coordination to get out the PKK from the generator without Homs? Is Stnchgl factions of the popular crowd battle south of Kirkuk, Mosul battle in light of the dispute over its role in the Battle of Mosul? Does this mean that the battles south of Kirkuk would be parallel to the Battle of Mosul? Especially The Arab Group called on the Council of Kirkuk, Hawija to launch edit operations, Mosul and one in advance.
These fundamental questions is that Washington, which is keen to contain the escalation between Ankara and Erbil, was sponsored by him Erbil and Baghdad agreement, it has said that the odds of Baghdad and Ankara will not hinder the date of the Battle of Mosul, this first. Second, the State Department official yesterday announced that in Ba’shiqah Turkish troops have entered to train volunteers at the invitation of the Iraqi government.
Third, after the news about the integration of PKK fighters in units of the popular crowd, and Washington has made clear that it will not support the involvement of elements of the PKK in the battle of the restoration of Mosul. This may be an indication of the positions of Washington that the battle for Hawija kicks Bmoish battle of Mosul, and not before, and that the popular crowd may incommunicable in the battle of Mosul, and that the role of the PKK could fall. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said today: If the coalition refused our participation in the liberation of Mosul process will do the plan “B” and if you do not succeed we will move to plan “C”.
Thus, Kirkuk, Mosul may mean in the local, regional and international agenda. If equation Baghdad-Kirkuk connector, you may draw a new course for Iraq after the incident Daesh 2014. Although Erbil will be the balance of pomegranate and egg weighbridges this equation, and especially as it has become today from the balance of local, regional and international relations at Baghdad possesses.
Baghdad-Kirkuk-connector equation gathered under the auspices of Washington, between Baghdad and Ankara on the one hand, and between Baghdad and Riyadh on the other hand, and perhaps also between Ankara and Riyadh and Tehran from a third party.
Kirkuk-connector-Baghdad collected Erbil and Baghdad a few days ago equation may be, and Ankara, Tehran and Riyadh gathered around the future of Iraq under the auspices of the Washington agreement in the next stage, resembling Lausanne equation collected the 5 +1 with Iran and fell nuclear agreement in July 2015, a tomorrow will bring together between Washington and Moscow, Ankara, Riyadh, Tehran and Doha agreement on Syria’s future.
