Kurdish leader warns of 'civil war' over Kirkuk

Published: 07.31.07, 20:39 / Israel News

The leader of Iraq's Kurdish region warned Tuesday of a "real civil war" If the central government does not implement a constitutional clause on the future of Kirkuk, the oil-rich city claimed by the Kurds.


Control over the city and the surrounding oil wealth is in dispute. Kurds are trying to annex the region. Iraq's Arab majority and a Turkish minority that lives in Kirkuk oppose that move. Massoud Barzani, speaking in an interview with US-funded Alhurra television, complained that the Baghdad government was dragging its feet on holding a referendum that could put Kirkuk under control the autonomous Kurdish region in northern Iraq.
