ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – US President Donald Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron agree in a phone call on the need for Erbil and Baghdad to resolve their issues through dialogue.

“President Donald J. Trump spoke today with President Emmanuel Macron of France. The Presidents agreed on the need for the Iraqi government and the Kurdistan Regional Government to resolve their differences through dialogue,” read a statement issued by the White House on Monday.

Trump and Macron stressed the “close relationship between the United States and France as allies committed to stability in the Middle East and North Africa.”

Their call comes just days after Macron hosted Kurdistan Region Prime Minister Nechirvan Barzani in Paris.

Suppose Tramp and Macron agreed that, if Baghdad rejects to resolve urgently all important problems and issues with Erbil through constructive dialogue according to the principles and provisions of the Iraqi Constitution, then US, France and other world leading countries will admit the legitimacy of the convincing outcome of the Referendum and will recognize sovereign independence of reintegrated Southern Kurdistan from failed Iraq. Of course “recommendations” mean that Baghdad must сease ideological, political and military influence of the Iranian regime, disband and disarm illegitimate pro-Iranian Shiite forces.
