Some did not allow Iraq to remain united: Barzani
Kurdistan Region President Massoud Barzani said despite efforts by Kurds to make a democratic Iraq some lines and groups did not allow the state to remain united.

After the fall of Iraqi toppled Baath President Saddam Hussein Kurds tried to establish a democratic Iraq but other blocs did not allow the state to experience democracy and live in a united Iraq, Barzani told a group of Kurdish forces of Peshmerga in Jalawla, a former disputed region between the Kurdish government and Baghdad and now under the full control of the Kurdish forces.

Visiting Barzani went on to say that Peshmerga forces did not allow any conflict in the disputed regions after Iraqi army forces lost the battle ground to the militants of the Islamic State of Iraq and Sham (ISIS).

He further refrained to Kurds’ struggle with Iraqi army in 1990s and the army’s destruction of the region, adding that after the Kurds retook control of the regions they did not hurt a single Iraqi soldier and the reality proves the Kurds are seeking democracy and a peaceful cooperation, reiterating that the Iraqi Kurds did what they could do for a democratic and united country and they can no longer wait for an unknown fate.

He added that Kurds are now trying both to help Iraqi political process and make their fate and future.
