Annexes Kirkuk

26 Jun, 2014

Kurdistan region President Masoud Barzani vows during a visit to Kurdish leaders in Kirkuk that the ethnic minority will not return the city to the federal government’s control:

We are not ready to relinquish even a hand’s width of Kurdish land. If Kirkuk at any time becomes part of the Kurdistan region again, it will be clear how well we will serve it.
