Shafaq News / The headquarters of the Kurdish leader, Kurdistan Democratic Party Chairman Masoud Barzani, called on Saturday for calm after the anti-terror agency arrested members of the Hezbollah Brigades in the capital Baghdad, but at the same time he supported the imposition of the rule of law.

“We call on all relevant parties to calm down, defuse the crisis and work to impose the rule of law,” headquarters spokesman Gian Dakhil said in a statement released today, commenting on what happened in Baghdad.

After midnight Thursday / Friday, an anti-terrorist force raided the headquarters of the Hezbollah Brigades and arrested a number of its members.

The operation is the first of its kind that was carried out according to orders from the Commander in Chief of the armed forces, Mustafa al-Kazimi.

A security source told Shafaq News that a (workshop) for the manufacture of missiles had been seized at the headquarters in the Al-Boueithah area of the session, south of Baghdad.

And that the force arrested 13 people during the raid belonging to the Hezbollah Brigades.

US officials have accused Tehran-backed Hezbollah Brigades of firing missiles at bases hosting US forces and other facilities in Iraq.

This comes after missile attacks near the US embassy in Baghdad and other US military sites in the country in recent weeks.

On Friday, the Joint Operations Command issued a clarification of the raid on a headquarters of the Hezbollah Brigades in Baghdad, in which it seized a missile workshop and arrested members of the Shiite faction close to Iran.

The leadership stated in a statement, “Our Iraqi people and the world have been busy launching indirect fire at the country’s headquarters, Iraqi military camps and foreign embassies protected by the state for the past years, and the importance of the issue and its negative repercussions on Iraqi national security, has become a follow-up topic from the highest levels, with the aim of informing the people Al-Iraqi and public opinion about the truth regarding this issue and developments taking place on the night of 25/26 June, we show the following:

1. Accurate intelligence was available on people who had previously targeted the Green Zone and Baghdad International Airport with indirect fire several times.

2. The concerned agencies monitored new intentions to carry out shootings against government targets inside the Green Zone.

3. The whereabouts of the group carrying out the intelligence fire were determined, and a fundamental arrest warrant against them from the Iraqi judiciary was prepared in accordance with the anti-terrorism law.

4. The Counter-Terrorism Agency was tasked with implementing the obligation to arrest and prevent the terrorist act against state sites, according to jurisdiction, and the mission carried out the task with a high professionalism, arresting fourteen defendants, who are many in a group with the criminal identifications represented by two launching bases.

5. Once the implementation process has been completed, a special investigative committee formed under the chairmanship of the Ministry of Interior and the membership of the security services was deposited, and the accused were deposited with the relevant security authority according to Al-Aidia to be detained until the investigation was completed and their case decided by the judiciary.

6. After the arrest process was completed, it was clear that armed parties moved with government wheels, and without official approval, towards government headquarters from inside and outside the Green Zone. These parties do not want to be part of the state and its obligations and seek to remain outside the authority of the Commander-in-Chief of the constitutional and legal armed forces.

And the leadership indicated in its statement, “While we confirm the seriousness of this behavior and its threat to the security of the state and its democratic political system, we show that these entities have used the capabilities of the state. And that cannot be allowed under any pretext. The matter to the judiciary is the competent authority. ”

Rudaw Digital

is expected to hold a delegation of the Kurdistan Regional Government to negotiate with the Federal Government of Iraq, a meeting with the Prime Minister of the region in the coming days, to discuss the new conditions for Baghdad and the results of recent talks. 

According to the information obtained by Rudaw Media Network, the delegation headed by the Deputy Prime Minister of the Kurdistan Region, Qubad Talabani, will meet within a few days with the Prime Minister, Masroor Barzani, in order to discuss the new demands that the central government added to its previous conditions in preparation for reaching an agreement with the regional government Kurdistan, not to mention Baghdad’s refusal to fully pay the salaries of Kurdistan Region employees in exchange for oil delivery to them. 

The follow-up of the Rudaw Media Network correspondent in Baghdad, Halkut Aziz, showed the results of the meetings held on June 25, 2020, that one of the reasons the Kurdish delegation did not reach an agreement with Baghdad is that the federal government demanded all revenue from the Kurdistan Region, in exchange for paying only 453 billion dinars to the Kurdistan Region , Which is equivalent to less than half of the salary expenses in the Kurdistan Region.

 Baghdad also called for the opening of a new border crossing that is under its direct control between Turkey and Iraq, alongside the Ibrahim Hebron crossing, and this represents a Turkish request that dates back several years ago to the opening of the Corava (Ofakoy) crossing, which was rejected by the Kurdistan Regional Government. 

The federal government also retracted the requirement to deliver 250 thousand barrels of oil to it, and now requests the Kurdistan Region to hand over all oil revenue to it, as Baghdad stipulated that the share of the Kurdistan Region’s share of border crossing revenue be only 50%.

According to Rudaw’s information, the Deputy Prime Minister of the Kurdistan Region did not accept these conditions, and he confirmed that the constitution gave the provinces the authority to set their own fiscal policy, and that this did not make the authorities of the center, and that what Baghdad presented was a “flagrant violation of the constitution.” 

 

It is noteworthy that the Iraqi Prime Minister, Mustafa Al-Kazemi, met on Tuesday (23 June 2020) with the delegation of the Kurdistan Regional Government, as the two sides discussed the options available to reach a comprehensive agreement.

It is noteworthy that the negotiating delegation to the regional government, headed by Qubad Talabani, and after his arrival in Baghdad, he started the first meetings of the third round of negotiations with the Iraqi Prime Minister, Mustafa Al-Kazemi, during which the meeting discussed intensively the options of the two parties to reach an agreement. 

The President of the Kurdistan Region, Nechirvan Barzani, visited Baghdad recently, and held a series of meetings with the three Iraqi presidencies, to discuss a range of issues, foremost of which is the question of budget and financial dues for the Kurdistan Region.

 

During this visit, the President of the Kurdistan Region had separate meetings with the President of the Republic, Barham Salih, the Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi, the Speaker of the House of Representatives Muhammad al-Halbousi, the representative of the Secretary-General of the United Nations in Iraq, Jenin Blackshart, the President of the Wisdom Movement Ammar al-Hakim, and the head of the Fateh Hadi bloc.

After midnight Thursday / Friday, an anti-terrorist force raided the headquarters of the Hezbollah Brigades and detained 14 members, and also found two Katyusha rocket launchers.

The operation is the first of its kind that was carried out, according to orders from the commander-in-chief, Mustafa al-Kazimi, after repeated rocket attacks on Iraqi sites that include American soldiers and diplomats.

The Kurdistan government makes a “fateful” decision regarding its differences with Baghdad

Shafak News / According to a source familiar with the meetings of the Kurdish negotiating delegation in Baghdad, the regional government will take a fateful decision tomorrow, Saturday, regarding its differences with the Iraqi government.

The source said to Shafaq News, that the Kurdish delegation ended its talks in Baghdad after three days of intensive meetings with representatives of the federal government.

He added that the head of the regional government, Masroor Barzani, will meet on Saturday with his deputy and head of the negotiating delegation, Qubad Talabani, to brief him on the results of the talks.

The source pointed out that “tomorrow’s meeting will be fateful for the region because the negotiating delegation reached a network with the center.”

And he added, “If the results of the talks receive the approval of Prime Minister Masroor Barzani, he will visit Baghdad next week to sign the final agreement.”

Regarding the content of the results of the talks, the source said that the understandings reached by the two governments indicate that the region will hand over revenue from the sale of oil and half the revenue from the border outlets to the federal government in exchange for its share of the federal budget.

And the previous Iraqi government headed by Adel Abdul-Mahdi decided last April to cut the salaries of state employees in the Kurdistan region after accusing the region of not committing to an agreement to deliver 250 thousand barrels of oil per day to the company, “Sumo” owned by Baghdad, which was denied by the government of Erbil.

Al-Kazemi’s government agreed last month to launch one-month salaries for the region’s employees, and mortgaged it on a regular basis on Baghdad and Erbil reaching an agreement on the oil file and the region’s share of the federal budget.

Since the decision to cut the salaries of the region’s employees, the two sides have held three rounds of discussions in the capital, Baghdad, the last of which was this week.

The Kurdistan Region was a major supporter of Mustafa Al-Kazemi’s assumption of the presidency of the Iraqi government, which could contribute to bridging the gaps between Baghdad and Erbil and creating the atmosphere for reaching agreements.

There are pending files between the two sides for many years, the most important of which is the file of managing the oil wealth and dividing its revenues, and the disputed areas between the two sides.
