PUK: Baghdad-Erbil crisis will lead to Iraqi civil war

Iraq's current crisis will lead to a civil war, Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) MP Rizan Shiekh Dleir said on Saturday.

Dleir urged the US-led Coalition to intervene and be neutral to solve this crisis before it evolves into a catastrophe.

In a statement, Dlier said that the current situation needs neutral figures to solve the crisis between Baghdad and Erbil, calling on Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi to be more diplomatic in solving this issue.

She stressed on the necessity that this issue must be only solved by Iraq and not any foreign nations as they only seek their own interests, noting that nobody wants to sacrifice more blood, whether from the Peshmerga forces, the Iraqi forces or from the Iranian Militias in Iraq and Syria (IMIS).

This comes as Iranian Militias in Iraq and Syria arrived at Kirkuk governorate, 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.
