    Border Crossing Authority 10/23/2017 Dr.. In the name of Brahimi three months ago, a new body, the Border Crossings Authority, has been set up and is directly linked to the Prime Minister . The importance of this body, especially after the decline in financial returns from border crossings during the past years to a large extent, according to some unofficial reports that the collection of revenues is equivalent to only 15% of the total revenues to be achieved. The importance of the role to be played by this institution comes through several aspects that do not stop at the limits of increasing financial returns only. In the financial aspect, it is expected to increase financial returns as the preliminary data indicate a doubling of financial returns during the past three months after the work of the Commission, To increase further with the passage of time with the ability to detail the work in the ports as well as the return of the ports currently stalled for security and political reasons . On the other hand, the control of border crossings will contribute to reduce the rampant corruption in these sites, which led to the emergence of organized crime gangs and their negative dimensions related to smuggling, forgery and loss of public money . Moreover, control of the border crossing points does not only mean increasing financial revenues, but also controlling the quality of the goods and goods entering Iraq in a manner that is consistent with the qualitative control measures, ensuring the safety of the local consumer on the one hand and preserving the wealth of the country on the other. To protect the local product in accordance with the strategies for improving the competitiveness of the domestic product . Finally, the decisive point in achieving the positive results that we mentioned is the extent to which this body can perform its functions at all land and air border crossings, especially that there are many informal outlets, which are more than the official ports. At the same time, it seems that the issue is not easy, but it is not as difficult as we think, especially after the political and military successes achieved by the government, which gives hope to move to a new stage contribute to restoring the prestige of the state and promote its economic progress. http://www.alsabaah.iq/ArticleShow.aspx?ID=146496

Baghdad was not ready for dialogue. " "We recognize that there are differences and issues to deal with, but Baghdad refused to sit down and dialogue, and took collective punishment measures against the Kurdistan region and its people, and we reached what we are today. We must use dialogue to understand what is happening and what must be done.

    Abadi: Kurdistan is close to bankruptcy and must recognize the authority of the Constitution 10/19/2017 Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said on Thursday that the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) was "close" to bankruptcy because of the corruption of a few officials and their families, calling on them to recognize the authority of the Iraqi constitution and engage in dialogue on this basis. "Iraq should be able to demonstrate its ability to use the democratic foundations to resolve internal conflicts," he said in a newspaper article published in the New York Times. "The Kurdistan Regional Government must recognize the authority of the constitution and engage in dialogue on this basis." Abadi said that as prime minister in Iraq, he must act in accordance with the constitution to protect all the Iraqi people and keep the country united. "To achieve this, the government has strengthened and extended its federal mandate, the federal authority on national borders, oil exports and customs revenues," he said, adding that "the redeployment of Iraqi forces this week to parts of Kirkuk and other areas in northern Iraq agree With this approach. " "The elements of the federal forces of the army and the fight against terrorism, police and rapid deployment units come from many ethnic and religious groups in Iraq, including the Kurds, and the spread was not an attack on Kurdish citizens or the city of Kirkuk," noting that "it was An Iraqi federal process aimed at restoring federal authority to areas under government control until 2014.

Jaafar said in an interview with Sky Press that "Prime Minister Haider Abadi adopted a project to pay salaries of all employees of the Kurdistan region and Peshmerga by the Federal Ministry of Finance directly through the system card without the mediation of financial region," noting that "this came after the control of wells Oil in Kirkuk and the region and other areas and subject them to the company of Sumo of the Federal Oil Ministry and the sale of oil and gas and derivatives by them. Jaafar added that "the salary scale above will be equal to the salary scale of federal government employees and Peshmerga with the federal security forces," referring to "the tragedy and suffering experienced by the employee in the Kurdistan region in delaying these salaries by many months or stealing a living from him by leaders do not care only Its parties, families and families. " He said that "this project is a qualitative leap to achieve the right of the oppressed and the general public and the false pretense of blood traffickers and gang of criminals who collect the capital outside Iraq from the strength of those oppressed."

The member of the Committee Hossam al-Aqabi said in a press statement that the rate of (17)% allocated to Kurdistan is not given only to deliver oil imports through the company Sumo through the fields of Kirkuk and the region did not comply with this condition, "and the second condition includes the delivery of non-oil revenues related to Balkmark and border crossings and also the region did not deliver one of them to Iraq. "Stressing that "the federal government gives spending only governing the Kurdistan region and related to the ration card and the purchase of electric power and the most important contractors and farmers. ""The federal government will not cut government expenditures that will weaken the Kurdish citizen, but will work to deduct the resources of the Kurdish government," he said. He pointed out that "the Iraqi government has not delivered (17)% of the actual expenditure of the Kurdistan region for failure to comply with the conditions agreed to the latter." http://aletejahtv.org/permalink/187247.html

    Kurds and change the political map in Iraq 10/19/2017 Patrick Cockburn / The Independent Translation / Annis Saffar Over the past two days, the Kurds lost about 40 percent of the land they controlled when they withdrew from areas that have long been the subject of disagreement and conflict between them and Baghdad, and the Kurdish Peshmerga fighters continue to withdraw from large areas in northern Iraq, extending between Syria to the west and Iran to the east . It is now clear that the two main Kurdish parties, the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) and the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK), agreed at their meeting on Sunday that they had no choice but to withdraw from Kirkuk and other disputed areas. The two parties know they are too weak to challenge the Iraqi security forces, and have no allies to seek help. Kurdish leaders today blame each other for the occurrence of the setback that will be recorded as the greatest disaster in the history of Kurds. The geopolitics of northern Iraq have changed, a change that is totally unfavorable to the Kurds. The Kurdish military units withdrew from the Sinjar area near the Syrian border, the home of the Yazidis who were massacred and enslaved by the Da'ash organization when they entered these areas in August 2014. Instead, they replaced the paramilitary forces of the Yazidis loyal to Baghdad. On the other side of the dividing line between Kurdish and non-Kurdish areas, the Peshmerga evacuated the towns of Khanaqin, Jalawla and Mandali, close to the Iranian border to the northeast of Baghdad. These are all areas where the Kurdish parties have established their presence and exercised their control over the last few years but now they are out of their hands, perhaps forever. The Peshmerga also abandoned the last two oil fields they were holding near the city of Kirkuk, and thus they have lost all the gains made by the Kurds on the ground since 2003. The acquisition of Kirkuk oil fields was crucial fate for the Kurds of Iraq. Baghdad was the scene of joy for what was considered the second greatest victory for Iraq and Prime Minister Haider Abadi this year. The first success was the restoration of the city of Mosul in July after a nine-month siege. The second was the easy, unforeseen defeat of the Kurds this week following their referendum on independence on September 25, a referendum that turned into destruction. A Kurdish commentator who did not want to be named said: "What I fear now is that Baghdad surrenders to the euphoria of victory as there is now talk of imposing the authority of the central government on every corner of Iraq." This may mean putting Baghdad under severe political and military pressure on the three Kurdish provinces Which consists of the Kurdistan region, which now seems to enjoy the grace. Iraqi President Fuad Masum, who is himself a Kurd, called for dialogue between the central government and Kurdish leaders to resolve the crisis sparked by the Kurdish referendum. Abadi said the referendum was "over and over," but he also called for dialogue " Constitution "and this means to exclude the issue of Kurdish independence and set aside it. There is no longer any doubt that the balance of power has dramatically and dramatically shifted to Baghdad, away from the Kurdish capital of Arbil. Barzani and his Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) on Monday tried to blame Peshmerga for not responding to the advance of Iraqi security forces, calling them "treacherous" and "abandoning" them in a separate deal with Baghdad. But Kurdish sources told the Independent that the two parties had agreed that they were too weak to fight for Kirkuk, but the orders did not reach all the Peshmerga leaders at the right time. On Monday, Peshmerga pulled out of the Democratic Party of Kurdistan from Sinjar and other sites held in Kirkuk province in what appeared to be a previously agreed evacuation. For his part, Barzani blamed Shamaa for what he described as "decisions taken by politicians as a unilateral response," a charge that we do not think he includes himself, although his decision to hold his referendum was a mistake that led to a confrontation with Baghdad. In which. The referendum process was opposed by all international and regional powers except for Israel, which is not in a position to provide practical assistance to the Kurds. Barzani also chose to challenge Abadi at a time when his armed forces had just won a major victory in Mosul, making retreat and surrender on his part unlikely. The United States has also declared its opposition to the referendum, but has distanced itself from the crisis. "For many years we had very good relations with Kurds, and we also stood by Iraq as you know," President Trump said. "We are not happy about this clash." The United States has also declared its opposition to the referendum, but has distanced itself from the crisis. "For many years we had very good relations with Kurds, and we also stood by Iraq as you know," President Trump said. "We are not happy about this clash." The United States has also declared its opposition to the referendum, but has distanced itself from the crisis. "For many years we had very good relations with Kurds, and we also stood by Iraq as you know," President Trump said. "We are not happy about this clash." The conflict between Iraq's Kurds will remain for decades to come, but the reality is that they were the result of Barzani's persistence in playing cards and gambling on luck, as well as the divisions among the Kurdish parties, among which were the lack of a military option Facing Baghdad. Thanks to their referendum, the Kurds have not only failed to gain independence but will find that the autonomy they considered unquestioned is also threatened when Baghdad tightens its grip on the Kurdish provinces. Many Kurds will accuse Iran of manipulating the Baghdad government and Kurdish parties until they reach this conclusion. Iran, of course, is pleased to see the Baghdad government, and Barzani, traditionally close to the United States, have become more vulnerable, but there is no need to look for conspiracy theories to explain what happened. http://www.alsabaah.iq/ArticleShow.aspx?ID=146267
