Iraqi vice-president denies Shi'i-Kurd conflict over federalism 23.6.2005

 


Text of unsigned report headlined "A southern and central Iraqi region is established; Dr Adil Abd-al-Mahdi: There is no disagreement between Shi'i, Kurdish alliances", published by Iraqi Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) newspaper Kurdistani Nuwe on 23 June

Iraqi Vice-President Dr Adil Abd-al-Mahdi has rejected the idea that there is any conflict between the Shi'i and Kurdistan alliances over the nature of federalism and its definition in the permanent constitution. He said that there is a general accord over the notion of federalism.

Regarding the security issue, he indicated that the situation had improved, particularly in Baghdad. He reiterated that the Iraqi forces are in a charge of the security question.

In another development, the governorate council of Kut, Babil and Samawah decided to establish the southern and central Iraqi region.

The head of the Diwaniyah Governorate Council, Shaykh Hamid al-Akhdari, said: "The council agreed on the decision to establish a southern and central Iraqi region within the framework of a federal unity." He added that he had contacted the Samawah and Kut governorate councils and that the question had been discussed seriously.

The head of the Diwaniyah Governorate Council also said: "We will try to announce its establishment before the constitution is drawn up. We need a federal system in Iraq to guarantee the country's unity, people's liberation from the central, exclusive regime and to prevent going back to dictatorship." He highlighted the successful experience of the Kurdistan region and the need to use this experience in other parts of Iraq.
