[size=13]Deputy speaker warns Iraqi PM of situation in Kurdistan Region[/size]
Baghdad: The Deputy Speaker of the Iraqi Parliament, Aram Sheikh Mohammed, warned Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi of the situation in the Kurdistan Region following a demonstration in the Sulaimani Governorate. The deputy speaker’s office released a statement on Tuesday saying Mohammed informed Abadi in a phone call about demonstrations in parts of the Kurdistan Region. “The situation [in the Kurdistan Region] needs speedy and serious steps,” the statement said. “You shouldn’t be waiting and looking at the pain of the people, as the Kurdistan Region is part of Iraq.” Mohammed, during his phone call with Abadi, warned any unexpected event in the Kurdistan Region would have a “negative and bad” effect on Iraq as a state.
[size=13]Iraqi PM: We will decide timing of Mosul offensive[/size]
Baghdad: Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said Tuesday that international military and humanitarian support was needed before an offensive to liberate Mosul from the Islamic State (IS), and that Baghdad would decide the timing of the battle. Abadi also said that Turkey would play no role in the offensive, which US military officials have reportedly said they expect in early October. “To begin the Mosul battle we have to get military and humanitarian support from the international community,” Abadi told a news conference in Baghdad. “We will set the time to retake Mosul, when our forces are completely ready for that battle,” he said. Asked whether Turkish troops would play a role, he said they would not, and added that Iraq is not the place for Ankara to wage its battle against the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK).

[size=13]Mistake to return Kirkuk to Baghdad would not be repeated: Peshmerga commander[/size]
Kirkuk: A commander of the Kurdish forces of Peshmerga told Kurdpress that the Kurdish forces would not repeat the mistake of letting the northern province of Kirkuk to be under the control of the Iraqi government in Baghdad. The deputy commander of brigade 2 in Kirkuk’s operational 5th axis in Mam region, Sergeant Edris Muhammad, reiterated that Kirkuk is a Kurdish province and Kurds in the north would not return the control of the province to Baghdad. There are few Kurdish regions that are not under the control of Peshmerga forces, adding that the region from the north of Iraq to Hwaija is Kurdish and we would not let them to be controlled by any other force than Kurds but the problem in that the Kurdish population in some regions have decreased due to problems and that situation has made our duty difficult, the commander added.
[size=13]Judges in Sulaimani show support for demands of protesters[/size]
Sulaimani: The Sulaimani branch of the Kurdistan Judges Union expressed support for the demands of protesters in the Sulaimani Governorate, stressing they support the demonstrators. The branch released a statement on Tuesday saying reform will come when legitimate institutions in the Kurdistan Region were reactivated and sovereignty came from the law. The Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) could not carry out the necessary work, including providing public services and salaries to employees, the statement said. “A lack of trust between the KRG and the people continues due to a lack of transparency and a violation of the rule of law,” the statement said. “The requirements of the people are explicit and the KRG must carry out their requirements.” “The authorities in the Kurdistan Region must know today’s issues are related to the results of bad governance in past years [and that is] due to a lack of the sovereignty of the law,” the branch’s statement added.
[size=13]Metro Center denounces attacks on journalists during region’s protests[/size]
Sulaimani: A media advocacy group denounced attacks carried out against journalists covering demonstrations in several parts of Iraq’s Kurdistan Region, calling on security forces to respect journalism. The Metro Center for Journalists’ Rights and Advocacy released a statement on Tuesday saying a number of journalists were attacked and detained and their equipment was seized, despite the demonstrations being peaceful. Journalists from NRT, Rudaw, KNN, Speda, Rega and Payam channels as well as Awena Newspaper were assaulted, arrested or had equipment seized in Sulaimani, Erbil and Rania, according to the group. “Unfortunately, the security forces make obstacles to covering the demonstrations instead of protecting them [the journalists],” the statement said.
[size=13]Iraq to seek $5 billion loan to offset deficit as parliament expects 2017 budget[/size]
Baghdad: The Iraqi government is planning to apply for $5 billion in international loan next year to balance the upcoming budget that is predicted to have an estimated 11 percent deficit largely due to the continued low prices of crude oil in global markets, a lawmaker told Rudaw Tuesday. Massoud Haidar who is a member of the parliament’s financial committee said they were expecting to receive the 2017 budget in early October as the assembly prepares to vote on the government’s proposed spending plan. Iraq’s budget in 2015 shrank to $105 Billion from $118 in 2013 as global prices of crude oil dropped to a record law. The country had no drafted budget in 2014 due to lingering disputes with the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) and the start of a costly war with the Islamic State (IS). The 2015 budget was based on $56 for a barrel of crude oil, but since the price hovered far bellow that price Baghdad used its international reserve cash to offset the widening deficit.
