[size=13]Barzani asks Gorran leader Mustafa to lead delegation to Baghdad: KDP media[/size]
Erbil: Efforts by Kurdish parties to end a year-long political deadlock reached a new level this week when KDP leader Massoud Barzani asked head of the Gorran Movement Nawshirwan Mustafa to lead a negotiating delegation to Baghdad for talks on independence, Rudaw which is close to KDP reported. Barzani’s special envoy for talks with other parties, Fuad Hussein, has delivered a message from the Barzani to Mustafa recommending that he leads a team to talk to Iraqi leaders on the question of referendum and independence. Barzani’s suggestion comes as part of a package of proposals his Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) has offered Gorran and other groups as a solution to the political deadlock. “There is still the issue of trust but the relations between Mr. Mustafa and Mr. Barzani are good and we expect Mr. Hussein’s visits to increase this trust and give Mr. Mustafa a clearer picture,” a Gorran official told Rudaw. rudaw.net | Ekurd.net

[size=13]Four new F16 fighter jets arrive in Iraq[/size]
Baghdad: Iraq’s ministry of defense announced Sunday it had received four new F16 aircrafts from the US as part of its nearly $2 billion purchase of 36 such warplanes. The US has so far delivered 10 F16 aircrafts in three phases since 2014. Iraqi officials have said the single engine, all-weather military aircrafts will enhance the airforce’s capability to target IS inside Mosul when the looming operation sets off. “The new aircrafts will have a substantial impact on the advancing ground troops especially when the Mosul offensive starts,” said Nasir Nouri a spokesperson from the ministry on Sunday. The US temporarily postponed the delivery of the planes in 2014 after IS takeover of army installations in Nineveh province. The planes were instead sent to an Arizona air base where Iraqi pilots were being trained to fly the advanced aircraft. rudaw.net
