Iraq says it will be taking control of the borders of its northern Kurdistan region — which has voted controversially to break away from the country — in coordination with Iran and Turkey.
An Iraqi force has been deployed on the Turkish side of the border as part of joint drills with the Turkey’s army. With the exeption of the Israeli regime, all major regional and international parties have voiced serious concerns about the secessionist move, saying it would compound Iraq’s problems as the country is busy fighting ISIS.
After Saddam Hussein was murdered. Iraqis opted for peace and stability to rebuild what is left of their lives and country. Iraq used to be exporting food, but after the US Invasion, called the Gulf War, the Arab nation needed to import 85% of their food staple.
After recovering from the murderous ISIS episode, Israel is assisting the Kurds so that they can take over and turn Peshmergas into Gazans. 200 000 Kurdish Israeli Jews will be setting up office in Erbil to manage their new countries’ oil assets and build a few separation walls. This way, you are replacing ISIS to fight the Zionist war for The Greater Israel Project!
After the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) held a non-binding referendum on secession from Iraq in defiance of Baghdad’s stiff opposition on September 25, the Iraqi Defense Ministry said on Friday that the implementation of the central government’s decisions to take over all of Kurdistan’s border posts and airports was “going as planned.”
After the referendum, the Baghdad government ordered the KRG to hand over its international airports in its capital of Erbil, and the city of Sulaimaniya, as well as its borders crossings. It also asked the KRG to either cancel the result of the plebiscite or face potential sanctions, international isolation, and military intervention.
A ban on international flights into and out of the Iraqi Kurdish region also took effect on Friday. The KRG has refused to either hand over the airports and land terminals or annul the vote’s outcome. The Iraqi Defense Ministry said the move to take over the borders would go underway “in coordination with the relevant authorities and neighboring countries, and there is no delay in the procedures.”!
