Kur­dish and Shi­ite ne­go­ti­a­tion com­mit­tees dis­cuss cabi­net for­ma­tion

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

The Kur­dish and Shi­ite ne­go­ti­a­tion com­mit­tees held a meet­ing to dis­cuss the for­ma­tion of the new Iraqi cabi­net in Bagh­dad in Satur­day Au­gust 23, 2014.

Dur­ing the meet­ing, they agreed to ex­change the de­tails of their agen­das for the next cabi­net at the end of the meet­ing.

Ahmed Ha­jji Rashid, a Kur­dish ne­go­tia­tor from Kur­dis­tan Is­lamic Group (Ko­mal), said that the meet­ing was very pos­i­tive, adding that they agreed on the gen­eral lines and the na­ture of the next meet­ings on the cabi­net for­ma­tion.

Fur­ther­more, the Kur­dish ne­go­tia­tor said that they agreed to hold an­other meet­ing two days later in or­der to dis­cussing the is­sues more in de­tail.

On the other hand, the Sunni ne­go­ti­a­tion com­mit­tees of Diyala Haw­ia­tona, led by Iraq’s Par­lia­ment Speaker, and Ara­biya, led by Salih Mut­lak, with­drew from the meet­ing with the Shi­ites.

The rea­son of the with­drawal was be­cause a num­ber of Shi­ite armed mil­i­tants killed many Sunni Mus­lims when they were pray­ing in a mosque on the last Fri­day.

Salah Ji­bouri, a Sunni of­fi­cial, an­nounced that: “It was a mass mur­der as 90 prayers were killed in a mosque in Diyala. We strongly con­demn this in­ci­dent and with­draw from the meet­ings.”

He also pro­claimed that if the big­gest bloc in the par­lia­ment would like to form an in­clu­sive cabi­net, then the gen­eral com­man­der of the armed forces must is­sue an or­der to ar­rest the crim­i­nals and com­pen­sate the fam­ily of the vic­tims

The Shi­ite mil­i­tants car­ried out the in­ci­dent fol­low­ing a road­side bomb ex­ploded to one of their car con­voys, and they killed the prayers in re­tal­i­a­tion of it.
