Barzani is pleased to speak unambiguously about Kurdistan and his government and confirms: Our future is linked to a secure and democratic Iraq

"The President of the Kurdistan Regional Government, pleased Barzani, an article in the Washington Post, speaking of the overall tasks and aspirations, a week after the formation of his new government.
"After 16 years of unrest in Iraq, five years of brutal war with the terrorist group Da'ash, the enemy that has put humanity at risk, we start a new journey towards building a stronger Kurdistan," Barzani said in his article. , We the Kurdistan Regional Government, to overcome the recent shocks, strengthen our position in the region and secure our presence on the international arena In short, we want to start a new beginning.
"My job is to change the way we do things, at home and abroad." As Prime Minister, I will present a different way of doing business that feeds the challenges we have faced, builds on our achievements and responds to a global dynamic.
The war against the Islamic state, which we helped lead on behalf of the world community, has hurt us economically. The burden became unbearable. The cost of war, the federal budget cuts by the government in Baghdad and the mass movement of refugees to our territory have left us with billions of dollars in debt.
During our suffering, we have remained a friend, a Western ally and a partner in the region. Since the Islamic state took control of much of western Iraq and eastern Syria in mid-2014, we have shown that our fight against terrorists was about protecting our allies as much as protecting ourselves.
We provided intelligence that foiled terrorist attacks abroad and provided refuge for some two million people who fled persecution. We have clearly demonstrated our good intentions as global citizens, and the shelter of Arabs, Kurds, Muslims, Yazidis, Christians, Turkmen and others. Ten kilometers from our parliament building, there is a thriving Christian community, from all over the Middle East, who build churches and practice their rituals in peace.
However, the cost of other refugees is increasing and is still partially funded. We can not play our role as hosts alone. We need to secure a future for the displaced and ourselves, and ask for help from our friends in the West in a number of ways.
Our challenges begin within Kurdistan of Iraq, which has been our homeland throughout the ages. As prime minister, I will carry out reforms based on the best global experience.
My Government will establish a diversified economy that will bring greater prosperity to all. Censon legislation to make Kurdistan an attractive location for investors. We will integrate and modernize our armed forces. We will work to ensure that the government serves the people, not vice versa. Engaging us politically and financially will be necessary for this transformation, so I invite our friends to do so.
I will also take steps to reset the relationship between Arbil and Baghdad, which has been precarious for 16 years.
We signed an agreement through which we received a share of the Iraqi budget. But allotments are rarely fully delivered. It is time for a more constructive and stable partnership with Baghdad. This week, I visited Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi, the first Prime Minister, where we discussed proposals to resolve disputes over oil, land, budgets and the role of our armed forces. I want to ensure that our agreements are respected through equitable distribution of budget revenues. The resolution would provide the firm foundation for future cooperation. Our future is tied to a secure and democratic Iraq.
In 2017, Kurdistan Iraq held a referendum on independence. The ballot was non-binding, but 93 per cent of the people voted in favor. While we welcomed the greater support of the international community for our right to self-determination, our priority now is to establish a strong and stable Kurdistan region based on the international community. We ask those who helped us protect them to recognize the constructive global role we played by helping us build our economy.
Over many generations of conflict, every family in Kurdistan Iraq has suffered a personal loss. We can no longer dispel the sacrifices made by many, by returning to the conflict that has plagued relations between parties and neighbors.
We have many friends in the international community who wish us good, but it is time to do more. We reaffirm our role as an honest broker that everyone trusts. We do so through the perspective of true friendship, having shown our unwavering support for the interests of our allies, including the United States, and our commitment to democratic values. We need our friends to help us start over.

Kurdistan Wants to Make a New Start: PM Masrour Barzani

 

Basnews English 18/07/2019 - 22:49 Published in Kurdistan

Kurdistan Wants to Make a New Start: PM Masrour Barzani
 
 

ERBIL — The next four years will be “a defining time” for Kurdistan Region, its neighbors and allies, Prime Minister Masrour Barzani said a week after he formed the new cabinet of Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG).

In an op-ed on Thursday, the Kurdish prime minister said Kurdistan Region is working to look past the recent traumas, consolidate its place in the region, and secure a presence on the international stage. “In short, we want to make a new start,” he wrote.

“Last week, I formed a government to lead the Kurdistan Region of Iraq. My mission is to change the way we do things, both at home and abroad. As prime minister, I will offer a different way of doing business that feeds off the challenges we’ve endured, builds on our achievements and responds to an evolving global dynamic,” reads a fragment from Barzani’s opinion.

We are embarking on a new journey toward building a stronger Kurdistan.

He reminds that leading a costly war against the Islamic State (IS), sheltering millions of Syrian refugees and Iraqi IDPs, and having its share from the Iraqi federal budget cut, Kurdistan Region is left with “billions of dollars in debt”.

Despite the ongoing challenges, as Barzani explains, the Kurdistan Region has remained a friend and ally of the West and a partner in the region. He emphasized that the leading role of Peshmerga forces in the war against the Islamic State was as much about protecting Kurdistan’s allies as it was about safeguarding Kurdistan itself.

Throughout our hardships, we have remained a friend and ally of the West and a partner in the region.

“We have provided intelligence that has foiled terrorist attacks abroad and offered refuge to almost 2 million people fleeing persecution. We have clearly demonstrated our good faith as global citizens, sheltering Arabs, Kurds, Muslims, Yazidis, Christians, Turkmen and others. Ten kilometers from our parliament building is a thriving community of Christians, from all parts of the Middle East, who are building churches and worshiping in peace.”

Barzani renewed a call on the Western allies to help Kurdistan Region to secure a future for the displaced and for the people of Kurdistan Region. He noted that as the prime minister of Kurdistan Region, he will implement reforms that will adopt global best practices and bring accountability to all arms of civil service and cabinet.

We have clearly demonstrated our good faith as global citizens, sheltering Arabs, Kurds, Muslims, Yazidis, Christians, Turkmen and others.

“My government will create a diversified economy that delivers growing prosperity for all. We will enact legislation to make Kurdistan a welcoming and attractive location for investors. We will integrate and modernize our armed forces. And we will transform public services and tackle corruption to ensure that the government serves the people, not the other way around. Engaging us politically and financially will be essential to this transformation, and I call on our friends to do so,” Barzani wrote.

“I will also take steps to reset the relationship between Erbil and Baghdad, which has remained fraught for the past 16 years. For most of that time we have essentially governed ourselves, though without breaking our tie with Iraq.”

We cannot perform our role as hosts alone. We need to secure a future for the displaced and for ourselves.

The Kurdish prime minister also shed light on his visit to Baghdad this week, where he met with Iraqi President, Prime Minister, and Parliament Speaker to discuss the ties between Erbil and Baghdad. Barzani revealed that he had discussed with him ways to settle the disputes over oil, territory, budgets and the role of Peshmerga forces. “I want to ensure that our agreements are honored through a fair distribution of budget. A resolution would offer the bedrock for future cooperation. Our future is wedded to a secure and democratic Iraq,” he reasserted.

On the 2017’s independence referendum of Kurdistan Region, to which 93% of people voted in favor but it faced international community’s backlash, PM Barzani said they would have welcomed greater support from the international community for the right of people of Kurdistan to self-determination. However, he notes that the priority now is to create a strong, stable Kurdistan Region anchored within the international community. “We ask those whom we helped protect to acknowledge the constructive global role we have played by helping us build our economy.”

We cannot perform our role as hosts alone. We need to secure a future for the displaced and for ourselves.

“Over many generations of conflict, every family in Iraqi Kurdistan has suffered a personal loss. We can no longer relinquish solidarity, or squander the sacrifices made by so many, through returning to the squabbling that plagued the relationships between parties and neighbors,” the Kurdish premier continued.

He reminded that Kurds have always been honest brokers trusted by all, including the United States, and that they are expecting their friends to help them “start again”.

Why does the Kurdistan region start a new era?

 
Merzur Barzani *
After 16 years of unrest in Iraq and five years of brutal war with the Islamic state (calling up) the terrorist, the enemy that has endangered humanity as a whole, we have embarked on a new journey towards building a stronger Kurdistan. 
The next four years will be a defining time for us, our neighbors and our allies. We in the KRG look forward to overcoming the recent shocks, strengthening our position in the region and securing our international presence.
In short, we want to start a new beginning.
Last week, I formed a government to lead the Kurdistan region of Iraq. 
My job is to change the way we manage things, at home and abroad.
As Prime Minister, I will present a different way of doing the tasks that face the challenges we have lived, build on our achievements and respond to a global dynamic.
The battle against Daqash, which we helped lead on behalf of the international community, has done damage to our economy. 
The burden became unbearable. The cost of war, the federal budget cut by the government in Baghdad, and the mass exodus to our territory have left us with billions of dollars in debt.
During our suffering, we have remained a friend, a Western ally and a partner in the region. Since taking over much of western Iraq and eastern Syria in mid-2014, we have shown that our fight against terrorists was about protecting our allies as much as protecting ourselves.

Ten kilometers from our parliament building, there is a thriving Christian community, from all over the Middle East, where they build churches and worship in peace.
However, the cost of other refugees is increasing, and is still partially funded.
We can not play our role as hosts alone.

We will update and integrate our armed forces.
We will transform public services and fight corruption to ensure government service to the people, not vice versa. Our political and financial involvement will be necessary for this transformation, and I invite our friends to do so.
I will also take steps to reset and improve the relationship between Erbil and Baghdad, which has been tense for the last 16 years.
We have basically governed ourselves for most of that time, without damaging our relationship with Baghdad.
We got a share of the Iraqi budget by agreement. But allotments are rarely fully delivered.
The time has come for a constructive and more stable partnership with Baghdad. As prime minister, last week I held my first visit to Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi, and I had proposals with me to resolve our differences over oil, land, budgets and the role of our armed forces.

Center, region and the unbalanced relationship

By AhadNA1   Articles 20/07/2019 02:52 AM | Number of readings:

Center, region and the unbalanced relationship

 

 


Jawad Al Attar

 There is a lot of talk these days about the imbalanced relationship between the federal government and the Kurdistan Regional Government and the latter's failure to pay the obligations made by the specific number of 250 thousand barrels per day, despite the fulfillment of the Center share of the province of the federal budget.

And if the wealth subject of dispute under you to the permanent Iraqi constitution for 2005 in Article (111) of which stated: «Oil and gas is the property of all the Iraqi people in all regions and provinces». Article (112), which regulated the relationship between the Center and the territories and limited jurisdiction in the first article: «The federal government to manage the oil and gas extracted from the existing fields with the governments of the provinces and producing provinces, to distribute their imports in a fair proportion to the distribution of population throughout the country». Therefore, what is currently being a clear violation of the Constitution by the Center and the region alike, the federal government does not manage production in Kurdistan, and the latter does not pay what is extracted to the center.

It seems that there are substantial reasons behind this issue and prevent the organization of constitutionally and legally in the forefront of the delay of the Parliament to legislate the law of oil and gas first; which has been hanging for years on shelves. And the desire of the region to achieve some kind of independence from the center secondly; in preparation for separation.

Therefore, the crisis between the Center and the region, which has been going on for fourteen years, can not be broken if there is no serious political will to solve it. The regional government has invoked over the past years not to cooperate with the Center. Which means that there is a deliberate intention of the region to break the partnership and separation.

And to not be a state within a state and not even repeat the crisis of the referendum should be the central government and parliament to take the initiative to commit the region to implement the agreements concluded and abide by the Constitution, and the political blocs within the parliament left the courtesies and provide the interest of the people on other secondary interests and put the subject for discussion and take what is needed, On the contrary, this time the adventure of the future of the unity of Iraq .. It is not permissible to bet on it.

      In turn, the Chairman of the Board of Directors of Erbil Bank presented the evidentiary receipts for tax accounting.
