Iraq's Kurdistan Govt KRG refutes accusation of arms smuggling to Syria  21.6.2012 





KRG denies Kurdistan Region's airports transfer weapons for Syrian Kurds

June 21
, 2012


ERBIL-Hewlęr, Kurdistan region 'Iraq', — The airports in the Kurdistan Region Government (KRG) territory have not been exploited for transferring arms to the opposition in Syria, an official statement by KRG said.

The statement was issued to refute such accusation made by Walid al-Helli, an MP from Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki's State of Law Coalition (SLC).

"We strongly condemn such baseless allegation by the SLC MP and announce the airports in the [Kurdistan] region are not used for this purpose," KRG statement said.

It stressed that all the airports in the Kurdistan Region comply with the rule and regulations issued by the Iraqi Civil Aviation Board (ICAB).

"The SLC and the federal government know it well that all the airports in Iraq, including those in Kurdistan, are under the scrutiny of ICAB," the statement said.

The statement continued the board has precise information about the trips made to and from Erbil and Sulaimaniyah airports as well as the cargo transferred into and out of these airports.

It described the allegation of smuggling arms to Syria as "trivial, because it is intended only for political end… to defame the successful experience of Kurdistan, to destabilize the region's security and to suspend the continual developments in the Kurdish community."

The statement added that these rumors only serve to lower the success of the KRG and deteriorate the region's stability.
