Shafaq News / Within ten days, the President of Kurdistan Region, Nechirvan Barzani was holding three pivotal files: the special relationship with France, the unification of the Kurdish house, and the consolidation of the pillars of the relationship with Baghdad.

Paris station

It was imperative for the “architect of diplomacy and peace” to carry out an exceptional political movement in its activity, from Paris to Erbil and Baghdad, and at every station in it, large files that he had alluded to after he held talks with French President Emmanuel Macron on March 30, when he announced that after His return to the region “will discuss the issue of stability in Iraq with the Kurdish and Iraqi political forces.”

The content of Nechirvan Barzani’s meetings with Macron was no less important, because according to what was announced the next day, during the Parisian meeting, the importance of supporting Iraq and the Kurdistan Region and its sovereignty was emphasized, and Macron “confirmed that he would make all attempts to stabilize Iraq and continue to support it politically and economically. “.

Therefore, it was only days after his return from his visit to France that he was landing in Baghdad to arrange the papers of the relationship with it, where he met with the Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi and the Iraqi President Barham Salih.

But Barzani before that, it was necessary for him to arrange the papers of the Kurdish internal house, so before coming to Baghdad, he held an expanded meeting on April 8th, which included Kurdish parties and forces in a way that strengthens the link between them, and to arrange the Kurdish business agenda, and to define the collective priorities.

Erbil station

In this context, the meeting, according to what Shafaq News published, dealt with protecting the unity of the Kurdish ranks, and discussed the proposal of all Kurdish parties participating in one list during the early Iraqi elections.

The Kurdish House meeting was not concerned with internal affairs only. According to a statement issued after the meeting, it also dealt with the situation in Iraq and the region and the external relations of the Kurdistan Region, the visit of the President of the region to France, the role of the Kurdistan Region in the new political equations and relations between Erbil and Baghdad, the Iraqi-American strategic dialogue, the participation and role of the Kurdistan Region in it and the Iraqi elections.

But the message and objectives of the meeting were clear, which is to present the problems and concerns of the various parties in a clear and open atmosphere, and the necessity and importance of unity, harmony, dialogue and understanding between the political parties in order to find a solution to all problems.

In a remarkable position before heading to Baghdad, and after the heated debate over the budget and the emergence of internal Iraqi disputes about it before its approval, Barzani did not intend to seize the opportunity to direct arrows of criticism at the Baghdad government and spoke, with his diplomatic tact and style, by rounding the corners of differences and tension, saying that “everyone must know What matters to the region is that we will be happy to see reconstruction and providing services to all regions of Iraq, from Fao to the far reaches of the country, and we hope that the budget will be passed in Parliament. ”

In a sentence that summarizes many of Barzani’s ideas, he said during the meeting that the only way to overcome problems and crises and protect rights, gains, and the constitutional and federal status of the region lies in peace, coexistence and unity of ranks, and that the presidency of the region will continue in this regard and the umbrella that unites everyone remains.

Baghdad station

Hence, his visit by the region’s president to Baghdad was the culmination of this exceptional political movement, to announce during his meeting with Al-Kazimi the region’s readiness to solve all problems and obstacles with the federal government on the basis of the constitution and within the framework of the federal system and to work with all Iraqi components to achieve security and stability for Iraq and the region, back Solving the problems of the Iraqi government and the regional government is a key to security and stability in Iraq.

The two men’s schedules are full. After the Parisian visit of Barzani and the unification meeting of the Kurdish house, there are many common files. The strategic dialogue with Washington held two days ago with Kurdish participation, and there is a suspicious return to terrorist activity and the exploitation of security holes in the so-called “disputed” areas, the fate of the Federal Court, the budget passage in Parliament, the situation in Sinjar, and the seriousness of the health situation in light of the Corona epidemic.

Barzani was keen to show friendliness to his host when he talked about the political, diplomatic and economic endeavors of Al-Kazemi, saying that the previous Iraqi diplomatic efforts and the visits and meetings that Al-Kazemi made (to Saudi Arabia and the UAE recently) showed the position of Iraq and the natural role of Iraq in the region and at the international level as well.

The significance of the effects of Barzani’s active movement is nothing more than the statement that Al-Kazemi made during the visit of the regional president when he said that the repeated visits that Barzani makes to Baghdad sends a number of correct messages to all Iraqis and becomes a reason for building confidence, showing goodwill and encouraging a spirit of cooperation and coordination in All areas are for the sake of the country’s interests, referring to his upcoming visit to the Kurdistan Region.

Baghdad station for Barzani, which included meetings with the President of the Republic, Barham Salih, Parliament Speaker Muhammad al-Halbousi, and the President of the Supreme Judicial Council Muhammad al-Halbousi. In order to support stability, ensure the security of citizens and meet their daily needs.
