The Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) has voiced its discontent with the federal government in Baghdad who want the predominately Shi’ite Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) involved in the liberation of the ISIS-held Hawija area of Kirkuk.

Ahmed al-Askari, a member of Kirkuk’s governorate council, said the capital of the KRG, Erbil, had informed Baghdad it was still against the summoning of the PMU.

“Differences between the KRG and the federal government concerning the liberation of Hawija are continuing, and no solution has been reached regarding the launching of military operations,” Askari was quoted as saying by Almaalomah website.

He then went onto rule out the start of such an operation against ISIS because of the disagreement between Erbil and Baghdad.

It is not wise to let the political drama be given a chance when national integrity and security are at stake. PMU is a govt organisation and it is the legal right of the govt to protect its borders from foreign incursions, whether its from terrorists or USA or any other state/organisation/union/illegal govt.
