Iraqi Parliament Demands Troops Be Deployed to Areas Disputed with Kurds

Iraqi Parliament
The Iraqi parliament demanded the deployment of government troops to Kurdish areas in the wake of a controversial independence referendum.

Iraqi lawmakers have demanded deployment of government troops to areas disputed with Kurds amid rising tensions between the central government in Baghdad and the Kurdistan Regional Government over a controversial independence referendum, presstv reported.

Hakim Abbas Mousa Abbas al-Zamili, a legislator from the Sadrist Movement, said on Monday that the parliament had approved several tough measures in response to the contentious Kurdish independence vote.

He added that in line with these measures, Baghdad would have to act to “protect Iraq's unity and to deploy troops in all disputed areas.”

Zamili further stated that the measures also called for the closure of all border crossings with the Kurdish region.

The Iraqi parliament considers the Kurdish independence referendum as “unconstitutional” and has called for punitive measures against all Kurdish officials and civil servants involved in it, the Iraqi lawmaker pointed out.
