BAGHDAD / The deputy of the coalition of state law, Fardous al-Awadi, on Sunday, received the Peshmerga financial assistance through the bank account from the United States, "a lack of respect for the US sovereignty of Iraq and encourage them to the Peshmerga to rebel against the Iraqi government."
"These US financial grants were agreed at the end of 2016 between Massoud Barazani and US Assistant Secretary of Defense Bob Wark, away from the Iraqi government responsible for all the security forces in the country," al-Awadi said in a statement on Tuesday.

"
Al-Awadi expressed her conviction that "America does not want good for Iraq and is still seeking to divide it, but at the time it chooses it is not from the choice of Barzani," noting that "these grants is one of the plans of division by national treatment in a manner hostile to the government of the Center."
Al-Awadi asked: "Is Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi aware of this aid? If he knows that it is a disaster to hand over money to the forces supposedly under his command.

"Were there any provisions in international law that would allow armed groups to be supported at the expense of the central government?" She asked. "If the United States were sincere, the funds would have been handed over to the Iraqi government, not far away."
She called on Al-Awadi Abadi that "do not be silent about silence on these positions as usual, and go out to his people and clarify this matter and that America is not allowed to play the sovereignty and dignity of Iraq as you desire?" Finished
