Iraqi political parties warned today of a new dispute between Baghdad and Erbil, due to the Kurdistan Region's intention to establish a commercial office in the State of Kuwait, without the knowledge and approval of the Iraqi federal government.
Mohammed al-Sayhoud, a leader in the State of Law coalition, led by Nuri al-Maliki in a press statement to Arab media that "such decisions, should not be taken by the Kurdistan region individually, but it must refer to the federal government, foreign policy is Baghdad's exclusive."
"All countries should not treat the region as a state, but should be treated as part of Iraq. These decisions are agreed between Baghdad and Kuwait, not between Kurdistan and Kuwait. This is unacceptable and may have negative repercussions."
He called the leader in the rule of law and the Iraqi Foreign Ministry that "have a position of the establishment of Kurdistan commercial office in Kuwait, this is the prerogative of their powers exclusively, they represent the political Iraq externally.
The Iraqi political analyst Mohammed al-Tamimi, said that "the decision of the Territory to establish a commercial office in Kuwait without the knowledge and approval of Baghdad, may generate a new dispute and conflict between Baghdad and Erbil, especially since there are dialogues and meetings to resolve previous differences."
He added, "Taking the Kurdistan region an important economic measure such, with the countries of the region and neighboring, may increase tensions between Baghdad and Erbil, and there may be political reactions that increase this tension."
A source familiar with the Iraqi Foreign Ministry, said, "The federal government has no knowledge of the intention of the Kurdistan region to establish a commercial office in the State of Kuwait, especially that such decisions must be with the consent of Baghdad exclusively."
