President of Kurdistan Region in Baghdad to discuss Iraq protests, bilateral relations

ERBIL, Kurdistan Region — President of the Kurdistan Region Nechirvan Barzani made an unannounced visit to Baghdad on Wednesday to meet Iraq’s prime minister, president, and parliament speaker to discuss Erbil-Baghdad relations and the month-long protests that have engulfed Iraq’s south and center.

Meetings with Iraqi Prime Minister Adil Abdul-Mahdi in Baghdad on Wednesday morning, then with Speaker of Parliament Mohammed al-Halbousi, were followed by discussions with President Barham Salih at Salam Palace.

The visit takes place amid ongoing protests in Iraq’s south and center that began on October 1, demanding an end to corruption, unemployment, and nepotism, among other grievances.

Protesters have been met with violent repression, including the fire of live rounds of ammunition and of military-grade tear gas canisters that have pierced the skulls of over 10 Iraqi protesters.

At least 319 people have died and more than 15,000 people have been injured, according to the Iraqi High Commission for Human Rights in the protests.

Protests have evolved to demand a complete overhaul of Iraq’s electoral laws, electoral commission, and amendments to the 2005 national constitution.

Some Kurds have expressed worry about potential amendments to a constitution which enshrined their autonomy in the Iraqi state and increased their national political influence.

This prompted Barzani to meet with Salih and senior Kurdish political officials in Erbil to discuss the developments last week

The Kurdistan Region president has stood by the Iraqi prime minister, who has been in office for less than year, saying he needs more time to deliver change in Iraq.

Abdul-Mahdi is generally considered to be sympathetic to Kurds, especially in comparison to his predecessors. 

Despite the warm relations, there remain some outstanding issues between the Kurdistan Region and the Iraqi government. The Region’s independent oil sales, budget disagreements, and the issue of the disputed territories continue to be points of contention.

Ashwaq Jaff, a former Kurdistan Democratic Party MP in the Iraqi parliament, told Rudaw on Wednesday that there are serious fears among Kurdish officials that the Region’s standing could be dented, as some Iraqi political actors weaponize Iraqi anti-corruption protests to push for constitutional changes.

“We all know that Iraqi rulers of past terms, especially the second and third terms [former prime ministers Nouri al-Maliki and Haider al-Abadi] tried hard to do away with the Kurdistan Region as a [federal] entity … whether through amending the constitution or force. But they didn’t succeed,” Jaff asserted.

With the protests in Iraq showing no signs of abating, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo spoke with Abdul-Mahdi on Tuesday, condemning the use of violence on protesters and urging the Iraqi premier to address their demands. 

“The Secretary deplored the death toll among the protesters as a result of the Government of Iraq’s crackdown and use of lethal force, as well as the reports of kidnapped protesters. Secretary Pompeo urged Prime Minister Abd al-Mahdi to take immediate steps to address the protesters’ legitimate grievances by enacting reforms and tackling corruption,” according to a US State Department readout.

“He reaffirmed the United States’ enduring commitment to a strong, sovereign, and prosperous Iraq, as outlined in our bilateral Strategic Framework Agreement,” added Pompeo.

post-call readout from Abdul-Mahdi, however, presented the discussion as taking a less condemnatory tone.

“The Secretary of State of America affirmed the support of the United States of America to his Excellency the Prime Minister and the Iraqi government, and the desire to bolster… affirming the right of peaceful protests in light of the democratic system of Iraq and supporting Iraqi security forces,” according to the prime minister. 

As Iraqi security forces continue their crackdown on protesters, tribal leaders, activists and protesters in Basra demanded that the city’s judiciary and police release all detained protesters within 48 hours. Hundreds of Iraqis have been detained since the protests began.

“We want them [detained protesters] released now, now, now in a period that doesn’t exceed 48 hours,” the Basra collective said in a Tuesday statement.

In a reiteration of comments made yesterday, Muqtada al-Sadr, an influential cleric and main rival of Abdul-Mahdi, urged security forces to exercise restraint and called on protesters to prevent American intervention in their movement.

“The honorable security forces … should not harm protesters and demonstrators, but they should push away infiltrators and the undisciplined, who assault the revolutionaries by killing, kidnapping, sniping them,” Sadr said.

“The revolutionaries have to fend off the ghost of external American or other interventions, and even [the intervention of] some activists sitting behind their keyboards, whose fingers are moved based on the colonial agendas of America and others,” he added.

Kurdistan President meets top Iraqi officials amid simmering unrest

ERBIL (Kurdistan 24) – The President of the Kurdistan Region, Nechirvan Barzani, on Wednesday arrived in Baghdad at the head of a delegation that met with the top three Iraqi officials amid an apparent lull in nationwide protests that began on October 1 and continued into November.

Erbil-Baghdad relations was one of the main topics of discussion between President Barzani and Iraqi President Barham Salih, Prime Minister Adil Abdul Mahdi, and Parliamentary Speaker Mohammed al-Halbousi.

In efforts to mend ties that deteriorated in late 2017, talks between the federal government of Iraq and the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) had been ongoing until September, approaching a concrete understanding between both sides. However, dialogue struck a pause due to Baghdad’s shift in focus to address violence-ridden protests in October.

A widespread violent crackdown by members of the security forces and paramilitaries resulted in the deaths of at least 300 protesters and injury to over 12,000 others in various Iraqi cities, with many of the casualties being in the capital.

As the violence continued, Abdul Mahdi repeatedly called for calm and tried to placate protests by offering a reform package that purports to address the grievances of a class of citizens who see the ruling political elite as corrupt and incapable of meeting their daily needs.

During his meeting with Abdul Mahdi, Barzani reaffirmed the Kurdistan Region’s “support for Iraq’s security and political stability, and the steps taken by [Baghdad] to reform and meet the legitimate demands of citizens.”

The President also highlighted bilateral Erbil-Baghdad relations and the need for “dialogue to solve outstanding issues and the progress achieved in this direction.” He noted that coordinated efforts are required to prevent a resurgence of terrorism, especially in vulnerable areas, namely the disputed territories.

Amendments to Constitution

In his meeting with President Salih, Barzani discussed “amendments planned for the Iraqi constitution,” deputy speaker Bashir Haddad told reporters in Baghdad. This is part of Baghdad’s reform agenda, with a recently-formed parliamentary committee dedicated to writing amendments.

Haddad pointed out that Barzani affirmed during his meeting with Salih the region’s “support for any constitutional amendments that serve Iraq and ensure better services to the Iraqi people in general.”

Erbil has, however, previously expressed that the current woes of the country are not due to the contents of Iraq’s founding document following the fall of the former regime in 2003. Rather, they have arisen because the Constitution’s stipulations have not been implemented.

Barzani reiterated this position during his meeting with Speaker Halbousi, saying “any amendments to the Constitution must serve the interests of Iraq, the country’s stability, and protect the constitutional rights of the Kurdistan Region and all of Iraq’s components in general.”

The Kurdistan Region has also stated its firm rejection of any amendments that affect the rights of Kurds and the powers of the KRG.

ERBIL (Kurdistan 24) – The President of the Kurdistan Region, Nechirvan Barzani, warned on Wednesday that the deteriorating situation in Iraq could affect the Kurds as well, and affirmed that Erbil is ready for “any cooperation or coordination to resolve the issues,” a statement from his office said.

Barzani had expressed his concerns regarding the current unrest in central and southern Iraq during a series of meetings with senior leaders of the country in Baghdad, where fresh violence resurfaced on Thursday as the security forces cracked down on protesters.

Widespread violent repression by members of the security forces and paramilitaries has resulted in the deaths of at least 300 protesters and injury to over 12,000 others in various Iraqi cities, with many of the casualties being in the capital. Four demonstrators were killed and at least 50 others were wounded on Thursday.

Arriving in Baghdad on an unannounced visit on Wednesday, Barzani initially met with top Baghdad officials, including Prime Minister Adil Abdul Mahdi, President Barham Salih and Parliament Speaker Mohammed al-Halbousi.

 

Continuing his meetings that same day, Barzani met with senior politicians and officials, including the leader of the National Wisdom Movement, Ammar al-Hakim, the head of the Fatah Alliance, Hadi al-Amiri, the head of the political body of the Sadrist movement, Nassar al-Rubaie, the chief of the State of Law Coalition, Nouri al-Maliki, and the leader of the National Coalition Iyad Allawi.

In a statement issued by his office, Barzani reiterated during the meetings Erbil’s “support for the security and political stability of Iraq.” He added that “Iraq’s situation affects the whole country, including the Kurdistan Region,” and called on all sides “to take responsibility in dealing with the situation, reform and solve problems.”

President Barzani had discussed with all senior leaders the ongoing unrest throughout the central and southern cities, “their causes and consequences, ways to solve issues and meet the legitimate demands of citizens, and expectations for the future of the political process in the country.”

In his meeting President Salih on Wednesday, Barzani discussed “amendments planned for the Iraqi constitution,” deputy speaker Bashir Haddad told reporters in Baghdad. This is part of Baghdad’s reform agenda, with a recently-formed parliamentary committee dedicated to writing amendments.

Haddad pointed out that Barzani affirmed during his meeting with Salih the region’s “support for any constitutional amendments that serve Iraq and ensure better services to the Iraqi people in general.”

Erbil has, however, previously expressed that the current woes of the country are not due to the contents of Iraq’s founding document following the fall of the former regime in 2003. Rather, they have arisen because the Constitution’s stipulations have not been implemented.

Barzani reiterated this position during his meeting with Speaker Halbousi, saying “any amendments to the Constitution must serve the interests of Iraq, the country’s stability, and protect the constitutional rights of the Kurdistan Region and all of Iraq’s components in general.”

The Kurdistan Region has also stated its firm rejection of any amendments that affect the rights of Kurds and the powers of the Kurdistan Regional Government.

Barzani's party threatens referendum if constitutional amendment touches "rights of the region"

Baghdad / Obelisk: The Kurdistan Democratic Party, on Friday, November 15, 2019, refuses to prejudice the rights of the Kurdistan region, in the event of the amendment of the Iraqi constitution.

"If there is a targeting of the Kurdistan region and an attempt to reduce its powers by amending the constitution, we will use our right and reject this amendment through a popular referendum," party member Repin Salam said, noting that the alleged amendments "will be rejected in three provinces."

He ruled out a member of the Democratic Party to "get things to this case," explaining that "the demands of the demonstrators are not related to reducing the powers of the Kurdistan region, and we support those legitimate demands."

He explained, "The Kurds have struggled for years to achieve these gains and can not accept to reduce them at all."

The President of the Kurdistan region, Nechirvan Barzani, met last Wednesday, in Baghdad, with Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi, President of the Republic, Barham Saleh, and Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mohammed Halbousi, and President of the State of Law coalition, Nuri al-Maliki, and the leader of the wisdom, Ammar al-Hakim.

The member of the Parliament of the Kurdistan region, the Kurdistan Democratic Party, Bahjat Ali, on Thursday, that Nigerfaran, set the position of the region of demonstrations and constitutional amendments, in his last visit.

Ali said in a statement published by the "obelisk", "The visit clarified the Kurdish position on the crisis of demonstrations, after what was ambiguous for some of them," adding that "Barzani stressed that the region supports popular demonstrations and spontaneous demands demanded by the demonstrators."

He added, "The visit renewed the region's support for the government of Adel Abdul Mahdi in crossing the current crisis."

He stressed, "We are aware that Abdul Mahdi is the most appropriate for this stage and therefore it was stressed not to support the dismissal of the government."

Ali explained that "the visit emphasized the articles that the Kurds refuse to amend in the Constitution because they exceed the right they gained through the struggle of many years against dictatorships."
