The ball is now in the state of law’s court to make the brave steps

The Kurdish Globe - - FRONT PAGE - Rawaz Mahdi Khosh­naw:

Rawaz Mahdi Khosh­naw, Kur­dish mem­ber of the Iraqi Par­lia­ment on the Kur­dis­tani Al­liance Bloc, ar­gues that in the past few years the re­la­tions be­tween Kur­dis­tan Re­gion and the Fed­eral Govern­ment of Iraq have been go­ing through many tur­bu­lences and of­ten cri­sis, which have “un­for­tu­nately” paved the road to many voices within the Na­tional Al­liance to speak pub­li­cally against Kur­dis­tan’s con­sti­tu­tional rights and eco­nomic pros­per­ity. PM Khosh­naw said in an ex­clu­sive in­ter­view with the Kur­dish Globe that State of Law, which is one of the main blocks within the Na­tional Al­liance has been adopt­ing poli­cies through which they aim at un­der­min­ing Kur­dis­tan’s pros­per­ity. MP Khosh­naw be­lieves “the con­tin­u­a­tion of this ap­proach from state of law un­der the Na­tional al­liances um­brella would even­tu­ally re­sults in the dam­age of the his­toric and the strate­gic ties be­tween the Kurds and the Shi­ites.”

“That is why prac­ti­cal steps needed from state of law to heal what have been dam­aged,” Kur­dish MP told the Globe. “Af­ter the brave visit of KRG's PM Mr. Nechir­van Barzani, the ball is now in the state of law’s court to make the brave steps needed to­wards im­ple­ment­ing the lat­est agree­ment and the pre­vi­ous ones. in ad­di­tion they need to re­as­sure ev­ery­one that the pil­lars on which the po­lit­i­cal process in Iraq had been built on which are con­sen­sus, true part­ner­ship, and the na­tional bal­ance are still the guid­ing prin­ci­ples in the con­text of the con­sti­tu­tion.”

Need­less to men­tion af­ter all the atroc­i­ties and the op­pres­sion Kurds suf­fered in the past, its other Iraqi part­ners na­tional duty to re­as­sure the Kurds that the demo­cratic state of Iraq is pre­serv­ing their rights and dis­play strong guar­an­tees that what have hap­pened in the past against them will never hap­pen again, mean­ing that Iraq of­fers hope not fear.

MP Khosh­naw re­it­er­ated that without these brave and se­ri­ous steps from the state of law, it would be too op­ti­mistic to be­lieve there will be any pos­i­tive change, and the cri­sis would re­main the dom­i­nant fig­ure in this coun­try.
