Iraq's PM Haider al-Abadi says doesn't want armed clash with Kurds

Iraq's PM Haider al-Abadi says doesn't want armed clash with Kurds”

French president Emmanuel Macron (R) shakes hands with Iraqi Prime minister Haider al-Abadi prior to their meeting at the Elysee palace in Paris, on October 5, 2017.

Macron said France and others are anxious about the situation of the Kurds after last month's referendum, and said France supports the stability and territorial integrity of Iraq.

The independence referendum has sparked tension between Bagdad and Kurdistan regional government, with Bagdad taking several punitive measures against Kurdistan including halting air flights to the region.

In this regard, Iran and Turkey believe that a Kurdistan separated from Iraq will first destabilize the neighboring country at a time when the total defeat of the terrorist Islamic State is approaching.

The Kurds voted by more than 90 percent in support of independence.

"France is ready, if Iraqi authorities wish, to actively contribute to the mediation launched by the United Nations".

On Wednesday, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that it was in no-one's interest to cut off oil supplies from Iraq's Kurdistan, which would raise oil prices.

"We are not looking for any confrontations, we don't want animosity", he said. "The Iraqi Kurdish secession vote is an act of betrayal toward the entire region", Khamenei said.

Iraq's prime minister said on Thursday he did not want an armed clash with Kurdish Iraqi authorities and urged Peshmerga forces in disputed areas to work with Iraqi security forces under the control of the central government.

Iraq's parliament, which is dominated by Shiite Arabs, has called for harsh measures in response to the September 25 referendum, including sending federal troops to retake the contested, oil-rich city of Kirkuk, which is held by Kurdish forces but claimed by Baghdad.

France confirmed a 30 million euro loan for Iraqi reconstruction, and appears eager to play a big economic role in Iraq's future.
