Baghdad / Obelisk: The UN Security Council agreed, on Saturday, May 21, 2022, to send a UN envoy to organize negotiations that would develop radical solutions to the existing differences between Baghdad and Erbil.

The media office of the Kurdistan Region Presidency stated in a statement, “The UN Security Council approved a request submitted by the President of the Region, Nechirvan Barzani, to send an envoy to the United Nations in order to organize negotiations between Erbil and Baghdad to find a radical solution to the outstanding issues between the two sides.”

He also noted that “the Security Council will issue next week a draft resolution to renew the work of the United Nations mission, and to discuss the issue in a special session.” Political sources were amazed at the UN Security Council’s involvement in an internal Iraqi dispute, usually an attempt by the region to internationalize the problems between Baghdad and Erbil, as well as setting a dangerous precedent for external interference in Iraqi internal files.
