ARBIL/ Aswat al-Iraq: Kurdish President Masoud Barzani discussed with Parliamentary Kurdish political blocs and the Kurdish ministers in the central government the current political crisis with Baghdad.
Kurdish government source told Aswat al-Iraq that the deterioration of relations between Baghdad and Arbil were also discussed.
Al-Sabah al-Jadeed daily reported yesterday that a Kurdish source disclosed that a US request was made that President Barzani will hold an enlarged conference in Arbil to solve the current crisis, but no denial was made on this news.
The source added that Barzani rejected the idea, because he did the same initiative, but no implementation of its decisions was made.
Barzani insisted that religious clergymen should guarantee the implementation of the decisions to be made, the source added.
On the other hand, Kurdish sources told Al-Sabah al-Jadeed that "there are some information that such conference could be held following the un-announced visit of State of Law delegation and the talks made with the representatives of the Sadrist Trend, Iraqiya bloc and the Kurdish leaders".
No other details were given.
The Kurdish presidency spokesman Omeed Sabah said to the paper that "such news should be published on the official site of the government", but he did not deny the possibility of holding the conference.
