Kurdi told Aswat al-Iraq that "the differences continued since the formation of the present government that led to its weakness, but gave more power to Kurdistan".

He added that "the Kurdish region has more powers, opposite to the government, in receiving the foreign delegations and accepting invitations by anti-Iraqi countries, which will have negative effects".

Kurdi called to resort to the constitution to end the differences, "taking into consideration that weakening the government will not be in their favor not now or in the future", as he confirmed.

Iraq is witnessing continued political crisis since December last along the accusations against vice-president Tareq al-Hashimi with terrorism and the attempts to demote deputy premier Saleh al-Mutlaq, both leading members in Iraqiya bloc.

Mutlaq described Premier Nouri al-Maliki as "a dictator", while Kurdish region president Masoud Barzani described the Iraqi government as "a loser", and charged Maliki to "unilaterally controlling the power in Iraq".

President Talabani held a number of meetings with Iraqi political figures to unify political stands.

Iraqiya bloc, in cooperation with Ahrar bloc, affiliate to the Sadrist Trend, warned of withdrawing confidence from the present government.

The Kurdish Alliance did not decide its stand, despite the continued criticisms by Kurdish region president Massoud Barzani against Premier Nouri al-Maliki.

Barzani charged the present government of being "a loser" and Maliki trying to "unilaterally"
