{Baghdad: Al Furat News} A member of the Kurdistan Democratic Party, Subhi Al-Mandalawi, revealed that the agreement of the federal government and the Kurdistan Regional Government regarding Sinjar district will extend to other cities that fall within Article 140 of the constitution.

"The agreement between the federal government and the Kurdistan Regional Government, in cooperation with the United Nations on Sinjar, we can consider it a historic and very important agreement, and it came as a result of meetings, dialogues and agreements to restore the stability of this city, which suffered from the sway of ISIS and after its liberation from ISIS," Al-Mandalawi told Al-Furat News. It was a theater and a burning area because of the PKK. "
He added, "There is a clear signal (in the agreement) not to accept the presence of any local or foreign forces, and therefore the agreement will certainly be implemented, and its results will be on the ground. These are the results of discussions that have taken place and are taking place and will be a gateway to implementing the constitutional article.
"With regard to the Labor Party, we reject its presence in Sinjar and other regions as it poses a threat to attack villages, and Iraq and the region will be subject to direct threat," Al-Mandalawi added, stressing that "this agreement will be a guarantee for the return of safety, and Sinjar is managed jointly between the federal government and the region on the security and service side."
The Federal Government and the Kurdistan Regional Government announced this evening, Friday, a joint agreement on the normalization of conditions in the Sinjar district of Nineveh Governorate.
The agreement includes, according to a statement by the Prime Minister's Office, "restoring stability in the Sinjar district, many administrative, security and service points. The administrative aspect is agreed upon with the Kurdistan Regional Government and Nineveh Governorate, taking into consideration the demands of the people of the judiciary."
The statement added, "Everything that is security falls within the scope and powers of the federal government in coordination with the Kurdistan Regional Government, and the service side will be the responsibility of a joint committee between the federal government, the regional government and Nineveh Governorate."
In his comment on the agreement, Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi affirmed, "The completion of the agreement on the administrative and security files in the Sinjar district, which would speed up and facilitate the return of the displaced to the judiciary," and stressed, "The federal government, in coordination with the regional government, will play its primary role in the implementation of the agreement. In its correct form, to ensure its success, in cooperation with the people of Sinjar first, he also stressed the government's keenness and seriousness for Sinjar to be free of armed groups, whether local or foreign from outside the borders.
While the mayor of Sinjar district in Nineveh province, Mahma Khalil, confirmed to the Euphrates News that the agreement includes removing the PKK forces from the judiciary.

ERBIL — The parliament of Iraq has welcomed the agreement between Erbil and Baghdad over the status of Sinjar, saying that the move would accelerate the return of the displaced Yezidi families.

The Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) and the federal government of Iraq announced the agreement on Friday, describing it as a “historic” deal in terms of governance and security in the predominantly Yezidi-populated area.

"The agreement will directly contribute to accelerate the return of the displaced families to their homes and ensure their stability in their areas," said Deputy Speaker of the Iraqi parliament, Bashir Haddad.

He emphasized that the deal would help establish a closer cooperation between the regional and federal governments in order to bring stability back and enhance public services as part of the efforts to reconstruct the devastated region.

Kurdistan Region Prime Minister Masrour Barzani said after the announcement of the agreement that “the normalisation of Sinjar will ensure that its people can determine their own future.”

“It is an example of what we can achieve when the Kurdistan Regional Government and the Federal Government work together, with mutual respect and shared objectives. I hope this is a sign of the progress we could make on other disputed territories between Erbil and Baghdad,” PM Barzani added.

The representative of the Al-Fateh Alliance, Fadhel Al-Fatlawi, held the central government responsible for not controlling revenues in the region, stressing the need to implement the law and not grant the region revenues and budgets at the same time.

Al-Fatlawi said to "the information", that "the government should resolve the financial file with the region in order to overcome the financial crisis, by recovering the money owed by the region."

He added, "Kurdistan, if it does not deliver the sums and revenues to the central government, then Baghdad must take a firm stand on this matter."

And that "the region acquires the revenues that must be delivered to Baghdad as well as gets its budget from the capital, and therefore this procedure is unfair and the government bears the responsibility to recover these funds, implement the law and limit the financial capabilities from north to south in its hands."
