ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – The Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) and parliament are going to separately convene on Thursday in order to discuss the referendum and reaction to the vote, as well as recent decisions from the Iraqi government and parliament, an official confirmed.
 
“Tomorrow we will clarify in an announcement that the Iraqi government and parliament’s decisions are illegal and unconstitutional,” said Dr. Amanj Raheem, secretary of the Kurdistan Region’s Council of Ministers.
 
Raheem said Baghdad has “overstepped” in its resolutions against the Kurdistan Region. Abadi has announced several measures against the Kurdistan Region, including deploying troops to disputed zones and shutting Kurdistan’s airports. 
 
Raheem added that the Iraqi parliament’s rulings cannot be implemented in Erbil unless “the Kurdistan parliament approves them.”
 
The Kurdistan Region, despite mounting pressures from the Iraqi government, neighboring and world countries, stood firm and its independence referendum on Monday.
 
The Kurdistan parliament’s factions are also going to meet on Friday to set a date for a parliament session to discuss the rulings from Baghdad, Omed Khoshnaw, head of the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) faction told Rudaw. 
 
“The agenda of the Kurdistan parliament session will be to answer the rulings the Iraqi parliament has issued against the Kurdistan Region,” he explained.

The Iraqi parliament on Wednesday issued twelve orders in response to the Kurdistan independence referendum.

A battle of parliaments, a Baghdad ruling and an Arbil counter ruling! Back and forth! A smart way to respond to Baghdad. Soon they will tire and will start negotiating! Or someone will start shooting and Kurds will then have no choice but to unilaterally declare independence. That is where we may be going.

Baghdad has essentially declared war on Kurdistan. If there is a time when all Kurds should unite it is now!

Kurdistan is demanding reparation payments from Irak ? Kurdistan is demanding billions of dollars in reparations from genocidal totalitarianism for the horrors of Wars in a ‘historical counteroffensive'. we were attacked by genocidal totalitarianism “This brings up the question, have we received – for these considerable losses, ones that we really have not recovered from till today, losses in people , elites, ones that practically cannot be caught up with, it will take many generates to make up for it – any sort of reparations? No.”
