Baghdad today - Kurdistan
Member of the Kurdistan Democratic Party, Imad Bajlan, confirmed today, Tuesday, that the lack of implementation of the constitution by the federal government is the basis of the dispute between Baghdad and Erbil.
Baglan told (Baghdad Today), "In every meeting between the Kurdistan Regional Government and the federal government in Baghdad, the region demands the application of the constitution and asylum to the Federal Court in contentious issues, but different governments in Baghdad apply it selectively."
He added that "any agreement between the two governments will be temporary, because all previous agreements are not implemented and Baghdad will soon be disavowed due to the failure to apply the articles of the constitution."
And he stated, "We need a comprehensive legal agreement that guarantees the rights of citizens in the region, as well as the rights of Baghdad, and this matter will not be applied through visits or relations between two governments because it will soon end as it happened with the previous agreement in the government of Abdul-Mahdi, for that constitution is Al-Faisal."
Before that, Baglan confirmed that the Kurdistan region is owed 27 billion dollars because of Baghdad's failure to pay the region's dues.
Baglan said that "the Kurdistan region was delivering 250 thousand barrels according to the 2019 budget while receiving half of the agreed amount and not more than 450 million," stressing that "the Kurdistan government does not take a share of the petrodollars like the Iraqi provinces."
He added: "In the days of the war against ISIS, the government borrowed 65 billion dollars and did not give it a dollar to the Kurdistan Region in the face of terrorism and now deducts part of the payment from the region."
He stressed that "the Kurdistan region owes $ 27 billion, which is because Baghdad stopped paying the region's dues at a time when it was fighting terrorism and saving the salaries of its employees forced."
A delegation from the Kurdistan Regional Government is preparing to visit the capital, Baghdad, as a prelude to completing negotiations on an agreement to deliver oil and revenue from border crossings in exchange for the federal government sending financial dues to the region's employees.

Al-Kazemi responds to Iran's provocations with the Battle of the Land Ports
- 4 Hours Ago
BAGHDAD - Baghdad responded strongly Saturday to indications indicating Tehran's intention to stimulate hostile security activities inside Iraq, when the Armed Forces Command in Basra, in the south, announced direct drilling of a trench in the vicinity of a border port to cut off drug and arms smuggling from Iran.
Pictures showed mechanisms operating under the guard of Iraqi army soldiers to cut off irregular dirt roads used by smugglers linked to armed militias, to introduce drugs and weapons from Iran to Iraq and transfer the US dollar from Iraq to Iran.
And the sale of Iranian drugs in Iraq generates big profits, after this country turned from a mere passage of this substance to other countries, to a consumer.
Iran depends on selling drugs in the southern Iraqi cities, exchanging the return for the American currency, then returning it from the borders.
Iran also provides weapons to its militias and sells to all clans and those willing to possess all the weapons and ammunition they need.
Most of this material is introduced through dirt roads near the Shalamcheh border crossing between Iraq and Iran in Basra Governorate.
Military sources said that the Iraqi army forces received direct instructions from Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi to stop smuggling operations between Iran and Iraq urgently, confirming that the Basra Operations Command has started since Saturday morning the establishment of a trench protected by an earthen shield that runs along the flat area near the Shalamcheh port, where it was built Militias are dirt roads.
This development comes after the Iraqi authorities announced hostile security activities - believed to be carried out by pro-Iranian groups in Baghdad and southern cities - targeting American interests.
It also came a few days after Al-Kazemi ended a visit to Tehran, which was surrounded by widespread controversy, and leaked from her that the Iraqi Prime Minister rejected an Iranian request to facilitate Tehran's acquisition of the US dollar.
The Iraqi and Iranian governments are reluctant to disclose the nature of the relationship between the two countries now, and whether they are really tense, against the background of the failure of Al-Kazimi's visit to Tehran.
Al-Kazemi’s directives did not stop at the level of stopping the smuggling of drugs and weapons from Iran to Iraq through the Shalamcheh outlet. Rather, it extended to include 13 other outlets, the most prominent of which is with Iran, including one with Saudi Arabia that was not opened mainly.
The Joint Operations Command, which is the highest military formation in Iraq, said that Al-Kazemi issued directives to “seize all border crossings, enforce the law in them, combat abuses and corruption and waste public money,” announcing its initiation of “allocating security forces to all outlets and the size of the assigned security force according to the nature of each Outlet, where protection responsibility has been defined for all outlets on the Iraqi army’s parts. ”
The leadership indicated that the forces empowered to protect the port and the customs sanctuary are “empowered with all legal powers to hold accountable any violation and from whomever it was.”
Sources say that this type of measure directly affects militia activity linked to Iran within Iraqi territory.
The government's actions reveal a clear plan to tighten control of the road linking Iran and Syria, via Iraq.
And if Iran uses its ports with Iraq in Basra and Diyala to introduce weapons, then it uses Anbar outlets to transfer weapons from Syria to Iraq.
These measures may provide a picture to answer the question that arises in multiple circles regarding the nature of the relationship between the Kazemi government and Iran.
But Al-Kazemi, according to observers, does not want to enter into an all-out war with Iran's arms in Iraq, which is besieged by the stifling economic and health crises.
Therefore, Al-Kazemi moves slowly and chooses files that do not raise media hustle, with the aim of strengthening the state’s influence versus that of the militias.
Observers say that without the support of the international community, Al-Kazemi may find himself powerless to cope with the tremendous momentum that Iran can manufacture in Iraq, through forces that view the country and its organs lightly.

In his meeting with the Iraqi Prime Minister .. Khamenei vows to strike the Americans in response to the killing of Soleimani
- 19 Minutes Ago
Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said that his country would deal a blow to America in response to the killing of the prominent commander of the Revolutionary Guards, Qassem Soleimani, adding that his country would not interfere in Baghdad's relationship with Washington.
Khamenei made his threat in Tuesday's meeting with Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kazemi, according to the official website of the Iranian guide.
Khamenei told the Iraqi Prime Minister - who is visiting Tehran - that his country will not interfere in Baghdad's relationship with Washington, but he warned that the American presence on the Iranian border is causing security chaos.
Al-Kazemi met Khamenei in Tehran on Tuesday during his first official visit abroad since he took office in May.
Khamenei said that "Iran will not interfere in Iraq’s relations with America, but expects Iraqi friends to know America and realize that its presence in any country causes corruption, destruction and destruction."
He continued, "The Islamic Republic expects to abide by the decision of the (Iraqi) parliament to expel American forces, as their presence is a reason for insecurity."
America and Iran
Khamenei indicated that Soleimani was killed in an American air strike by a plane near Baghdad airport at the beginning of the year, after which the Iraqi parliament requested the withdrawal of American forces. "They killed your guest in your house and rudely admitted that," he said.
He added that Iran "will never forget this and will certainly strike a retaliatory blow to the Americans."
Tehran responded to the killing of Soleimani by launching ballistic missiles at bases used by American forces in Iraq, knowing that Trump refused to respond militarily to this strike.
The missile attack targeting the al-Asad base in western Iraq did not result in deaths among US forces, but it wounded soldiers with brain tremors.
Khamenei said that Iran opposes "what weakens the Iraqi government," contrary to Washington, which he said does not want "an independent and strong Iraqi government elected by popular vote."
