ERBIL – Following last month’s disagreements between the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) and Gorran (Change Movement), Gorran is hoping prominent Iraqi figures can step in to ease the tension.
A source, who wished to remain anonymous, told BasNews from Baghdad that Gorran members of the Iraqi Parliament have recently met with several Iraqi leaders, asking them to mediate between Gorran and KDP.
Deputy Speaker of the Iraqi Parliament Aram Sheikh Mohammed also asked the UK and UN envoys in Baghdad to help them resolve their disagreements with the KDP, the source claimed. “But his request was rejected as the UK and UN do not trust Gorran any longer.”
According to information obtained by BasNews, Head of the Islamic Supreme Council of Iraq Ammar al-Hakim arrived in Sulaymaniyah on Monday November 2nd to attend a conference and discuss the KDP-Gorran disputes; the Iraqi Parliament Speaker, Salim al-Jabouri is also scheduled to visit the Kurdistan Region on Wednesday for the same purpose.
However, KDP official Ali Hussein blamed Gorran for neglecting previous international attempts to help the Kurdish political parties reach a compromise.
Instead of inflaming the situation, Hussein said, Gorran had to seize the opportunity to take the Kurdish interests forward.
KDP member of Iraqi Parliament Arafat Karam insists that Gorran officials must not to take internal Kurdish affairs to Baghdad. He revealed to BasNews that the Iraqi officials have also rejected Gorran and encouraged them to solve internal conflicts themselves.
Gorran Member of Iraqi Parliament Amin Bakir, on the other hand, rejected the allegations and said that the KDP is responsible for the political crisis in the Kurdistan Region and the party must resolve it.
Regarding Erbil-Baghdad disputes over oil exports, Bakir claimed that the KDP, which is leading KRG’s oil policy, is not willing to reach an agreement with Baghdad. “They rather wish a continuation of oil agreements with Turkey.”
