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. " It is noteworthy that after the entry of Iraqi forces south of Kirkuk and control of oil wells, on Monday, the Office of Abbadi said in a statement on Wednesday that the security in Kirkuk is under the control of local police and the support of the counter-terrorism, noting that Abadi ordered to prevent the presence of any other armed groups In the province, in reference to the popular crowd, and directed Abadi to pursue elements that spread hatred and racism. http://www.mustaqila.com/2017/10/%D9%83%D8%B1%D8%AF%D8%B3%D8%AA%D8%A7%D9%86-%D9%84%D8%A7-%D9%86%D9%8A%D8%A9-%D9%84%D8%AF%D9%8A%D9%86%D8%A7-%D9%84%D9%82%D8%AA%D8%A7%D9%84-%D8%A7%D9%84%D8%AC%D9%8A%D8%B4-%D8%A7%D9%84%D8%B9%D8%B1%D8%A7/

    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.

" 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."

"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.

    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

    Proposals to facilitate the development of strategic plans 10/18/2017 Baghdad / Shukran al-Fatlawi, a specialist in the economic affairs weakness of strategic planning as a static approach in the country, in spite of the existence of a number of national strategies and development plans, stressing at the same time that the planning extends on all economic axes such as agriculture, infrastructure and tourism, "The importance of strategic planning in responding to immediate requests and achieving results," said economist Munzat Abdul Jabbar al-Bakr during a seminar organized by the Iraqi Institute for Economic Reform and the Iraqi Businessmen Union and the Center for International Private Enterprise (CIPE) recently. A quick short - term as well as the effects of which will extend into the future, because it will strengthen the role of the private sector through the creation of a culture of the development of strategic plans for companies and generate a belief that there is sufficient justification for it ». Al-Bakr stressed the need to launch a national awareness campaign on the importance and benefits of strategic planning for the future of sustainable development in Iraq and its benefits in light of the challenges facing the country. Analysis and discussion of the results Presented by the Center for International Private Enterprise and Madar Al-Nujoom 2016, the results of analysis of the agendas of eight governorates from different parts of Iraq cover six main sectors, namely agriculture, construction, infrastructure, industry, trade, business, tourism and hotels, investment , Banks and education; and identified major impediments to growth. The results of the Center's report indicate the lack of institutional capacity for change events, low levels of implementation, rampant corruption, complex and cumbersome procedures for the business sector, weak strategic planning, declining infrastructure and service delivery, weak import control mechanisms, and the consequences of war. Strategic Planning Constraints Al- Bakr explained: "The constraints of strategic planning are present in all dimensions. In the field of planning, there is adoption of large objectives that do not fit with the possibilities, as well as the planning of reality and incomplete planning, not to mention poor communication with the implementers." He added that the field of governance is also weak in the institutional construction and the lack of a clear organizational structure for the implementation of planning, accompanied by a lack of will and commitment in the allocation of resources and implementation, as well as lack of efficiency and the possibility of implementation of the implementation of planning ». Effective and visionary leadership that suffers from a lack of concern for the time factor, weak training and training activities, lack of links between planners and implementation tools, and a decline in monitoring and evaluation mechanisms . And on legal legislation, explained the eldest: »The legal environment is incomplete, accompanied by the abundance and the introduction and conflict of laws and regulations and instructions». Strategic planning requirements Al-Bakr suggested a number of solutions to meet the current challenges that led to weak strategic planning. He pointed out that in the forefront of the proposals is the need to develop a national strategy vision for Iraq until 2030, which will be supported by all stakeholders to meet, define a clear strategic direction for all and in harmony with the goals of sustainable development . He called for «launching a national awareness campaign to promote the importance of strategic planning and its benefits in light of the challenges facing the country, with another awareness campaign comparing the current reality of Iraq without effective strategic planning with the countries that adopted it and its impact on development and prosperity and the requirements of its implementation and challenges, Establishing a performance management and delivery unit for results ». http://www.alsabaah.iq/ArticleShow.aspx?ID=146180
