Arbil/ Iraq TradeLink: Kurdish Presidency regarded hoisting its flag in Kirkuk as "legal and natural",
calling "not to magnify the matter and turn it into internal conflict".
It added that the Kurdish flag was available in Kirkuk before the entry of Da'ish (ISIS) organization.
"No one has the right to use this issue for special political purposes", it confirmed.
"It is important to preserve the culture of co-existence and brotherhood among the components of Kirkuk province", it elaborated.
On 28 March, 2017, Kirkuk Provincial Council voted to hoist the Kurdish flag beside the Iraqi national flag in the province.
