Kirkuk provincial council member Burhan al-Assi said on Thursday that the province is Arab and informed the Kurds that we rejected the referendum in the province, pointing out that the outstanding problems on the province are concerned by the central government.

“The talk about the referendum in the province of Kirkuk has already been announced as an Arab component we rejected him in addition to the component Turkmen, Christian and other minorities,” Al-Asi told Mawazine News.

He added that “the insistence of the governor and the President of the Council to hold a referendum to join the Kurdistan as they are from the Kurds concerned by the central government is the owner of the final statement in addition to it is concerned about outstanding issues, whether in the oil file or other.”

“The Arabs are an essential component in Kirkuk, the province is Arab and half the province, but the terrorist is called up and therefore the referendum can not be held there.”

And on the arrival of troops from the Peshmerga to the province, said Al-Assi: “We did not see these forces enter the province.”

It is noteworthy that local media reported the arrival of Artal from the Peshmerga forces to Kirkuk and control and forced in the referendum by force.
