They have been cheated so long and persecuted by Maliki and the GOI they want an iron clad

It's very apparent that post ISIS is there, we're at that milestone. Barzani is useing the ultimate strategy on behalf of the Kurdish Region, either an ironclad deal with Central Government now, implement a Solid Binding Contract, implement HCL article 140 Erbil agreement that's totally binding with detrimental implications in event of breach of that contact i.e. payments of proceeds required by that agreement on time scheduled periods, or in case of contract breach by Central to Kurdish state we then people of Kurdistan by contract breach will become our own Government. He is telling us, the international community, the Kurdish region, and Central Government of Iraq, that's the terms of the final agreement with Iraq, and anyone else Globally. That's my interpretation of what Barzani is specifically saying here. And, I'd have to say he's being very wise and calculating, and cautious, and impressive leadership for the people he represents. Very good article. It's looks to me like we are almost there. If all these terms are met, which I believe they will, then Monetary Reform will begin. How long? If Central agrees to Kurdish terms, which I believe they will then MR won't be much longer. Yeah, I know, I have to say that work "Soon"!

No turning back on referendum, top Kurdish official pledges

ERBIL, Kurdistan Region— The Kurdistan Region will go ahead with its much-talked about public vote on independence this year and there will be no turning back, the head of the country’s influential Security Council Masrour Barzani said Wednesday denouncing what he called efforts that want to delay the vote, tentatively planned for the end of 2017. 

“We will not listen to those who find pretexts in order for the referendum not to take place. We won’t listen to them as there is no turning back and no second thoughts,” Barzani said in a defying speech at a youth gathering in Erbil Wednesday. 

“The process towards independence has already begun. We are currently taking steps toward it and God willing, I am assured that we will arrive there in a short period. The referendum will be held this year according to what has been discussed and planned,” he added. 

Barzani’s remarks were seen as response to earlier statements from other Kurdish factions which have demanded the reactivation of the regional parliament before holding the referendum. 

The opposition Gorran Movement (Change) and the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) have stated that they will support the vote after the reactivation of the parliament which has been shut down since October 2015 after heated disagreements between Gorran and the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) effectively dismantled a power-sharing deal between the two rivalling parties. 

The KDP has rejected to support the ousted Speaker Yousif Muhammd whose return to office is one of the main preconditions presented by Gorran to take part in the referendum. 

The KDP has in the past accused Muhammad, a leading Gorran member, of impartiality.

“A new presidency should be elected for the parliament, but the parliament should not become a partisan tool and come in the way of national issues, we think the parliament should serve this purpose,” Barzani said referring to the referendum.

Barzani’s Wednesday remarks reaffirmed earlier statements from top Kurdish officials including the region’s president and premier about the referendum which is most likely to take place before the end of this year.

SPECIAL - Iraqi Constitution responds to the region ... Independence is illegal now!   May 10, 2017

 

خاص- الدستور العراقي يرد على الإقليم... الإستقلال غير قانوني حالياً!

 

Reacted once again to the issue of the independence of the region from the center, after the head of the Supervisory Board of the referendum Hoshyar Zebari that Kurdistan may be voting on independence in the fall, a few months.

 

What does the Constitution say and what do jurists think in these developments?

 

The legal expert Ali al-Tamimi said in an exclusive interview with Al Qurtas News that the referendum is a right of the peoples according to the Charter of the United Nations as well as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and even the Charter of the International Covenant. Throughout history there have been several internal divisions that led to the independence of part of it,

 

But in contrast, when a certain category of countries decide to resign, there are several measures that must be stopped. Al-Tamimi stresses the separation of currency, science, land and population, the identification of sea and border ports, and others.

 

636300077549411634-ar-1111134.jpg

 

The most important thing is coordination with the surrounding regional states. In the case of the Kurds, there is an extension outside Iraq that reaches Syria, Iran and Turkey. Therefore, understanding with the countries of the region is necessary. He adds that any independence can not happen in the case of the Kurdistan region, but it went through three stages, starting with internal movements with Baghdad and reach an agreement satisfactory to both parties, and then regional movements, and then international moves towards the United Nations.

 

These moves, which require efforts and coordination, require the United Nations to submit a request to the General Assembly, and the latter by a simple majority, one half plus one agrees or does not agree, and then submits the request to the Security Council to issue a resolution, as happened in southern Sudan. At the same time, the legal expert Ali al-Tamimi stops repeating such Kurdish statements on independence, saying that Erbil has always said that independence is close, but internal differences have so far prevented consensus.

 

636300078288374160-NB-225543-636266594493496607.jpg

 

Finally, with regard to the Iraqi constitution, al-Tamimi said that the Iraqi constitution in its first article stipulated that Iraq is one unit, and there are resolutions issued by the UN Security Council stressed the unity of Iraq and independence, and the Iraqi-American agreement signed in 2008 emphasizes the unity of Iraq And it is one mold and one unit. And therefore any independence away from the understandings established with Baghdad is illegal and unconstitutional.

 

As for the disputed areas, as the Iraqi Constitution calls it in Article 140 or disputed, he felt that it was very important to be resolved in 2007, but because of the existing circumstances and disagreements, the matter was postponed. If we assume that the region will declare independence, it can not include these areas because the Iraqi law and constitution put these areas in the middle circle and is not resolved. If Erbil goes to the option of annexing these provinces by force, then Baghdad has the right to resort to the Security Council and even the use of force.

Like i have said before...Kurdistan may hold their referendum, which is step one if the people vote to leave iraq. Then there are many steps to be taken as stated in the first article, and that will take years to complete. So in my opinion i dont see this hindering the raising of the value of their currency what so ever. In my opinion i think if you give the kurds what is rightfully theirs that would settle a great majority of the problems because that is what is fair and owed to them. One of the biggest things that has to change is baghdad not being willing to give an inch and to rightfully acknowledge kurdistan. ;)
