Sunni Arabs Unite in Kirkuk

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

Sunni Arabs in Kirkuk are, for the sec­ond time, form­ing a Sunni Arab coun­cil. The coun­cil will in­clude Arab MPs, pro­vin­cial coun­cil mem­bers, and per­son­al­i­ties from four­teen Sunni Arab par­ties and fac­tions in Kirkuk.

“The coun­cil will be­come the real face of the Arabs for any de­ci­sion, meet­ings and ne­go­ti­a­tions amidst these hot de­vel­op­ments in the re­gion, es­pe­cially about the fu­ture of Kirkuk and Iraq,” said Es­mael Ha­didi, Arab politi­cian and spokesper­son of the coun­cil.

Their main goal in form­ing the coun­cil at this stage is to be pre­pared for af­ter the de­feat of the Is­lamic State. The Sunni Arab lead­ers are con­cerned about the role of Shia mili­tias in the Sunni ar­eas dur­ing the fight against IS and af­ter­wards.
