Kurdistan’s government denies Baghdad’s accusations of conspiracy

Summary: The government of Iraq’s Kurdish region denied the Iraqi regime’s accusations of conspiring with militants taking over Ninawa, Diyala, Saladin, and Kirkuk. 

The head of the Kurdish government Nechirvan Idris Barzani said that the Iraqi federal government’s political, economic and military failures are the major contributors to the country’s ongoing crisis.

Barzani added that the Iraqi government’s accusations are un-founded. He explained that the regional government stands by Iraq’s Sunni Arabs who have been marginalized, attacked and oppressed through humanitarian aid the same way it assisted Iraq’s Shia’a population in the past. 

The Kurdish government estimates that there are around three hundred thousand Iraqis displaced by the ISIS onslaught and prepared refugee camps for them.
