IMIS, Iraqi forces seek to seize Kirkuk's resources – Barzani adviser

Kurdistan President Masoud Barzani's Political Adviser Hemin Hawrami revealed on Friday that the Iranian Militias in Iraq and Syria (IMIS) and Iraqi forces, are marching towards Kirkuk to seize its resources and riches.

He added that IMIS and the Iraqi forces want to seize Kirkuk's oil well and its airport.

Hawrami urged the Iraqi leadership to resort to dialogue and abandon any wars and clashes, noting that Peshmerga forces will retaliate against any aggression against it.

Hawrami's comments come amid tensions between Baghdad and Erbil after Kurdistan's leadership carried out an independence referendum on 25th of September that included the oil rich Kirkuk governorate.
