    UNAMI Concerned by Raising Kurdistan Flag in Kirkuk
    8:58 PM ADMIN


    Baghdad/ Iraq TradeLink: The United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI) is concerned by the recent decision of the Governor of Kirkuk to raise the flag of the Kurdistan Region of Iraq over Kirkuk Citadel.

    The Mission noted that the Government of Iraq has clarified that under the Constitution Kirkuk falls under the jurisdiction of the central government and that no flag should be raised in the Governorate other than the Iraqi flag.

    The Mission cautions against any unilateral steps that might jeopardize harmony and peaceful coexistence among many ethnic and religious groups that rightly call Kirkuk their home and want to live and work together in the post-Da'ish period, building on the spirit of unity and cooperation of all components in fighting the terrorist Da'ish.


    UNAMI expresses appreciation of the huge sacrifices of the people of Iraq in fighting the terrorist Da'ish, noting in particular the sacrifices and victories of the Kurds and the Peshmarga accomplished together with the Iraqi security forces.

    Raising Turkmen flag in Kirkuk
    4:20 AM ADMIN

    Kirkuk/ Iraq TradeLink: The war of hoisting flags in the Kirkuk was expanded when the Turkmen raised their national flag in several areas in the city.

    Observers believe it was a reaction to the decision taken by Kirkuk governor Najm al-Deen Kareem to raise the Kurdish flag beside the Iraqi national flag over governmental establishments in the province.

    Deputy Chairman of Turkmen al-Haq (The Right) Front Sami al-Bayyati stated that "raising the Turkmen flag is a clear reaction and message to Kirkuk Provincial Council before approving the governor's move".


    He added that the timing of raising the flags has no relations with Nourowz festivities.

    On the other hand, Kirkuk Provincial Council's member Mohammed Kamal pointed that raising the Turkmen flag on non-governmental buildings "is no big deal or may stir sensitivity", because we
    "cherish all flags, including the Turkmen's".

    "The Turkmen used to raise their flags on their schools in Kirkuk, but stirred no problems with the Kurds", he added.

    "Raising the Kurdish flags on governmental buildings is a Kurdish right according to the Iraqi constitution, which was voted for by all, including the Turkmen", he elaborated.

    Earlier, Governor Kareem ordered hoisting the Kurdish flags over the governmental buildings beside the Iraqi central flag.


    The Kurds believe that Kirkuk city is one of the disputed areas with the central government in Baghdad, which is covered by Article 140 of the Iraqi Constitution.
