Baghdad: Kurdish political figure and former Iraqi MP Mahmoud Othman said it is vital for Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) to settle its issues with Baghdad, including independence, through dialogue. Othman told BasNews on Wednesday that the US has welcomed KRG PM Nechirvan Barzani’s recent visit to Baghdad to discuss some issues with the Iraqi PM Haider al-Abadi and other Iraqi senior officials. Othman noted that holding talks with Baghdad does not signify the abandonment of independence, asserting that even Kurdish independence from Iraq needs to be achieved through dialogue with Baghdad. KRG PM Nechirvan Barzani and his accompanying delegation visited Baghdad on Monday and met with senior officials in Baghdad. basnews.com | Ekurd.net

[size=13]Standard of living lower in Kurdistan than rest of Iraq for first time: study[/size]
Erbil: For the first time since the Iraq War in 2003, the standard of living in the Kurdistan Region is “considerably” lower than the rest of Iraq, according to a fresh report by the World Food Programme (WFP). The survey, conducted in May, shows that the previous two-digit growth has collapsed with the economy now facing around -6 percent shrinkage in 2016. The economic growth in Kurdistan Region between 2007 and 2014 fluctuated around 7 percent to 10 percent but it stagnated after the double shock of the Islamic State offensive and plummeting oil prices, coupled with economic sanctions from Iraq’s central government. The report was compiled in collaboration with the Offices of Statistics in Kurdistan and Iraq. “The data show that people’s purchasing power is considerably lower in Kurdistan’s cities than that of people in Iraqi cities,” said Sirwan Muhammad from the office of statistics in Erbil. “The food purchasing power in Kurdish cities has shrunk by nearly half since 2014,” he added. rudaw.net

The government of the Flanders region of Belgium will look into providing mobile hospitals to support the Peshmerga, in addition to continuing providing aid to the region through the Red Cross, the Minister-President of Flanders said after meeting with a delegation from Iraq’s Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG). “Above all we can provide humanitarian aid for the Kurdistan Region, as we are very active through the Red Cross and helping Kurdistan,” Geert Bourgeois told Rudaw. “In the meantime we can and want to support the Peshmerga in the war against IS [Islamic State]. We would like to provide mobile hospitals and will ask our college hospitals how this can be done.” rudaw.net
