“The strategy is that if we can not get our rights in federal Iraq, we can negotiate with the constitution,” he said. “We have to think about mass popular resistance.”

“We were in negotiations with Nuri al-Maliki (Iraqi Vice President), we act with great indifference, we were linking the negotiations with the oil project and Kirkuk, while other issues, such as Article 140 and the borders of Kurdistan and the province’s share of the federal budget.”
