Alwaght- Iraqi Kurdistan Region has finally accepted the country's federal court decision to decertify the semiautonomous region's secession vote, removing shadow of a civil as the Arab country is already gripped by a three-year-old terror crisis.
The Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) said on Tuesday it would respect the Nov. 6 ruling by the Supreme Federal Court, which declared that no Iraqi province could secede.
KRG in September, defying all domestic, regional and international oppositions, held a breakaway referendum making the federal government to deploy military forces to region's borders in order to protect the West Asian state's sovereignty.
“We believe that this decision must become a basis for starting an inclusive national dialogue between (Kurdish authorities in) Erbil and Baghdad to resolve all disputes,” the KRG said in a statement.
In the wake KRG's provocative referendum, central Iraqi government launched a large-scale operation and retook control of large swathes of 'disputed territories', including oil city of Kirkuk, from Kurdish militias, Known as Peshmerga.
Disputed areas label covers some parts of Kirkuk, Diyala, Nineveh and Saladin provinces on which the Iraqi government and Kurds struggle for control and demographic structure determination. Taking advantage of vacuum of power created by ISIS incursion into the Arab country, Kurdish militias seized control of many parts of these regions.
