Iraq Daily News -
See Marina Autwaa, senior researcher at the Woodrow Wilson the U.S., the answer comes from Tehran, in regards to al-Hakim and al-Sadr, if Iran wanted to support al-Maliki, as it did in 2010, alongside the United States, they would put pressure on the Shiite parties to be in a single row, then al-Maliki could get a majority with the help of small parties..
But from the Shan government dominated by Shiites to be weak, it will encourage the Kurdistan to move around faster toward independence, and will increase the anger and frustration among the ranks of the Year as well as the influence of Islamist militants in them.
But the Kurdish parties, which is negotiating with each other to form a block, may support the al-Maliki if gave them what they want: the export of oil and gas directly without passing through Baghdad, despite the payment of Baghdad, 83 percent of revenues agreed to by the two sides is the share of the central government, and the presence of a tube connecting oil fields in Kurdistan, Turkish port of Ceyhan, and two and a half million barrels of oil stored there in Turkey before the sale, could Kurdistan oil exports, and if allowed al-Maliki to the Kurds that issue the oil and gas directly, and agreed implicitly to their interpretation of the Constitution, it is likely that rushes the Kurds to support and put the idea independence on the shelf until the time comes again.
But Shan agreement like this that increases the number of Iraqi provinces, Sunni and Shiite, so talk openly about to follow the model of the Kurdistan to become autonomous regions, which is permitted by the constitution theoretically.
If Baghdad acknowledged the right of the Kurdistan export oil directly without paying attention to Baghdad, the other provinces will demand the same thing, and this is what will turn Iraq into a federal weak central government, or even turn into a confederation.
Says MP for the coalition of state law, Abdul Abbas Xiaa “that if the export of Kurdish oil in violation of the Constitution and the laws of Iraq, P” is not the right of any person to bargain and negotiate it.
He stressed that the Iraqi oil “belongs to the Iraqi people, all of us, and will not be a paper to negotiate and compromise, and not the right of the Prime Minister and the Kurds to negotiate” if it is in violation of the export of oil to the Iraqi constitution and laws.
“The Kurdistan oil export must be according to official approvals and under the supervision of the central government.”
He says that the system Xiaa Confederation “not provided for by the Constitution,” but “the constitutional text spoke of the provinces, and must abide by the constitution.
Bis say that a coalition of state law that negates the Confederation “categorically” and that “our position is clear to abide by the Constitution, and not to divide Iraq into mini-states.
The Kurdistan Regional Government has criticized the central government in Baghdad strongly following the progress the Iraqi Oil Ministry request for arbitration against Turkey to the International Chamber of Commerce in Paris against the backdrop of the start of Arbil to export oil to world markets via Turkey.
The Ministry of Natural Resources in Kurdistan, “The Federal Ministry of Oil has isolated itself behaving, and is likely to cause it harm the oil industry and oil reserves in Iraq.
She described the request for arbitration as a “self-defeating” and “illegal”, warning that it “will not allow empty threats from the oil ministry to intervene subject of oil exports by the provincial government.
Turkey announced it had started out selling shipments stored at Ceyhan since last Thursday, and received the Iraqi government to provide requested arbitration against Turkey, BOTAS of oil pipelines of the state, claim to “stop any operation that is not licensed to ship oil transfer or storage.”
For its part, Washington has warned that the move could push the export of oil to the deterioration of the situation in Iraq.
But Maliki jubilant victory, it seems that he will not compromise, despite announcing its openness to work with any political party, but stated clearly that any agreement will be based on conditions, for example, said of the Kurds that they are welcome in the coalition government as long as they accept the interpretation of the Constitution, and this would mean giving up their ambition to export heavy oil alone.
By the end of the day, all sides are trying to scan each other twice before they decide to start Palmsawmat and conclude deals seriously.
