(Baghdad: Al-Furat News) Secretary General of the Peshmerga Jabbar Yawar, on Saturday, called for the revival of the former security committees shared between Baghdad and Arbil to inject blood between the Peshmerga forces and the federal forces.
“We believe in the constitution and with the dialogue and talks through which we can solve the problems, but we do not believe in gun barrels because weapons will not solve the problems,” Yawar told AFP.
He explained that “the spread of Peshmerga in disputed areas came after the collapse of five Iraqi military teams during an invasion calling for these areas and did not remain federal forces in it.”
“When I was a member of the High Commission, we maintained the security of the conflict zones, we had coordination centers and joint controls, we were able to impose calm and security and there were no clashes between the federal forces and the Peshmerga.”
He pointed out that “the withdrawal is not only through consultative meetings through joint committees to implement orders on the ground; so in some areas managed to withdraw from Peshmerga and in others was unable and all that happened because of the lack of coordination between Baghdad and Arbil.”
He pointed out that “if we want to restore the situation and the truce between the military forces must revive the two security committees between the Ministries of Defense and Peshmerga and a parliamentary crisis resolution.”
