The Iraqi ambassador to Moscow, Haider Mansour Hadi, that any armed clash between government forces and forces of northern Iraq, is unlikely at the moment.
"The current clash is totally out of the question," Hadi was quoted as saying by the Tass news agency in an interview.
"The Iraqi government has all the means to ensure the security, stability and unity of the country," he said.
"Both sides recognize that such a conflict has dire consequences for all," he said. "The Baghdad government insists on returning to dialogue with the Kurds under the constitution, which was violated by the Kurdish leadership to hold a referendum on secession on 25 September last."
"In 2005, the provinces of Erbil, Sulaymaniyah and Dohuk voted on the new constitution for Iraq, and the results came at the rate of 99 percent. They said yes in the Kurdish provinces, superior to other areas of Iraq, and this means that the Kurds must abide by the constitution that they approved."
According to Hadi, "the contentious issues between the center and the region centered in the administration of Kirkuk and some areas that have been liberated from the control of the Daash, as well as the issue of oil exports, where the Iraqi Kurdistan exports more than 900 thousand barrels per day without the approval of Baghdad.
