Baghdad: A delegation from the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) met in Baghdad with the leader of the Islamic Dawa Party, Nouri al-Maliki, to discuss the current situation in Iraq and the Kurdistan Region. Maliki released a statement on his official Facebook page saying he received a Kurdish delegation led by the head of the PUK Politburo, Mala Bakhtiar, on Tuesday. According to the statement, Maliki reiterated the importance of resolving suspended issues between the Kurdistan Region and Iraq so as to bring “justice and equality” between Erbil and Baghdad. Maliki, a former Iraqi prime minister, reaffirmed the continuity of relations between the political parties to come to an understanding and agreement on all issues facing the country. Maliki urged mutual support between Iraqi and Peshmerga forces as well as Shia paramilitaries (Hashid al-Shaabi) to defeat Islamic State (ISIS) militants, the statement said.

[size=13]Kurdish migrants from Turkey waiting in Kurdistan for Iraqi citizenship for decades[/size]
Erbil: Nearly 25,000 Kurdish migrants who fled Turkey in the 1990s and settled in refugee camps across Iraq’s Kurdistan Region are still without Iraqi citizenship despite numerous applications. The families say they have been deprived of basic rights in the Region, such as education, work and healthcare, due to their underprivileged refugee status. Under Iraqi laws, any foreign national who has lived in the country for a period longer than 10 years will be granted citizenship upon request. “We have applied several times, but without any success,” says Abdulkareem Yousef, a father of six whose children have all been born in the Kurdistan Region. “Without Iraqi citizenship the future of our children is at great risk. Most of them have difficulty finding proper jobs because of that,” Yousef said.

This who use this have hit their spouses, attacked people and killed … We have seized nearly a ton of that type,” he added.

Sulaimani: A member of Kurdish Peshmerga forces has created 35 drones in the last three years in the Kurdistan Region. Ari Kamil, who was displaced from Tuz Khurmatu, told NRT he has worked at creating drones for three years in the region after returning from abroad to serve Kurds through his work. He said he uses the same materials used all over the world – fiberglass, wood and cork – to make drones. “If I had the opportunity, I would be able to create developed planes that would operate with less energy and with a high speed,” Kamil said. “They would be able to stay in the sky for a longer time even if the weather was windy.” The 27-year-old Peshmerga noted he has already planned to create cargo aircraft but he requires permission to create it. “I also need to have the primary materials and a safe, calm place to work,” he said.
