A source familiar with the ruling Shiite National Alliance in Iraq on Wednesday on the possibility of reaching a solution to the crisis between Baghdad and the Kurdistan Region in the “near future”, especially after the flexibility shown by the parties to the crisis in recent times.
“The two sides are in the process of forming a committee of seven members, five of them from Baghdad and two Kurdish figures, whose task is to review all the contentious issues between the two parties,” Asharq Al-Awsat newspaper quoted the source as saying.
The source pointed out that “the Committee will conduct a thorough examination of the political and economic files and issues of borders and airports, and I expect that its work will result in a solution soon to the crisis between Baghdad and Erbil.”
In turn, did not rule out MP and spokesman for the Kurdistan Democratic Party, Renas Jano, the possibility of reaching Baghdad and Erbil to resolve the crisis soon, if the federal government showed some flexibility and moved away from “intransigence and the policy of imposing a fait accompli,” asserting knowledge of an agreement between Baghdad and Erbil to ” Which will take into account the interests of the parties and through this committee the problems will take their way to a near solution. “
“The Kurdistan Region expressed its desire to facilitate matters at all levels, including the delivery of border crossings, provided that it is done in a civil and not military.”
He admitted that there is “another type of talk within the region, as it does not mind in principle the supervision of the federal government at the border crossings and airports, to be done through negotiation and not imposed by force.”
Despite conflicting statements by officials in Baghdad and Erbil, most of the moves and indicators that have taken place in recent days indicate mutual flexibility that could lead to a near solution to the crisis.
