We have inherited an old problem that delayed embarking on many a step, due to Saddam Hussein’s regime Arabizing areas inhabited by Kurds and Turkmens. In truth, all these disputes must be resolved pursuant to Article 140 [of the constitution] — for, if the parties failed to resolve them,
they shall be referred to international arbitration, or to the United Nations if arbitration also failed.

chattels: News from the MERI Forum in Erbil : Baghdad urges Erbil to remain committed to Iraq By Campbell MacDiarmid rudaw.net/english/kurdist… http://rudaw.net/english/kurdistan/041120152
chattels: The future of the beleaguered country was once more under scrutiny during a panel discussion between the Iraqi speaker of Parliament Salim Al Jabouri and former KRG prime minister Barham Salih at the 2015 MERI conference on Wednesday.
Recognizing the importance of the KRG in attracting foreign investment and its role in sheltering an estimated 1.5 million internally displaced people (IDPs), Jabouri appealed for the KRG to consider their mutual interests and remain committed to a federal Iraq.
chattels: Despite describing a political process that had recently proceeded by “one step forward and two steps back,” Jabouri insisted that Iraq remains a viable state.
chattels: Salih questioned the ongoing relevance of the constitution, however. “It has become a document that creates disputes rather than resolving them,” he said.
chattels: More than a decade after the fall of former dictator Saddam Hussein, the average Iraqi citizen remains deeply frustrated, Salim noted. What was needed was real dialogue and a new vision for the country.
chattels: Such a vision was within reach, Jabouri insisted. “We’re not the first country to face this kind of challenge and we won’t be the last. There is a desire to reform and there are the requisite economic resources, which, if used properly, will allow us to overcome these difficulties.”
chattels: Whether the Kurdistan region would remain within Iraq was a “purely Kurdish decision,” he said. He added, however, that independence should not be played as a card to pass Kurdish problems along to Baghdad. Regardless of whether the Kurds remain within Iraq or decide to separate, the two regions would remain close neighbours.
