Key Kurdish Party Urges Unity, Solidarity in Iraq.

Summary: TEHRAN (FNA)- The Iraqi Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) on Saturday underlined the role of unity in resolving the country's problems, reiterating that unity and solidarity is Baghdad's only option to solve the challenges it is facing.

In a statement on the occasion of the 33rd anniversary of the foundation of the PUK, the party said that "Iraq is now living through a deep crisis due to the deep distrust between Iraqi political parties and parliament's fractions".

The statement pointed to the failure of the efforts made to solve the current crisis in Iraq, and warned about the consequence of these disputes for the Kurdistan region and its people.

"We believe that unity and solidarity of our nation is the main prerequisite to our readiness for confronting any possible event and the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan is fully prepared to achieve and establish it (unity)," the statement added.

Last Sunday, a senior member of the Kurdistan Coalition in the Iraqi parliament announced that Kurdish MPs will never take back their vote of confidence to Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki's cabinet and will continue supporting it.

"The Kurdistan Coalition will not give a vote of no-confidence to Mr. Nuri al-Maliki's cabinet," Mahma Khalil told FNA on Sunday.

He underlined the Kurdistan Coalition's support for the Maliki cabinet, but meantime said that the prime minister should try to settle its differences with the Kurdistan region and remain committed to the Erbil agreement.

Earlier, a senior Iraqi legislator had also downplayed effectiveness of the attempts made by certain parliamentary factions to undermine confidence in the country's incumbent government, and said most Iraqi lawmakers support the cabinet of Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki.

"The efforts made by the al-Iraqiya list and certain other Iraqi parliamentary fractions to take a vote of no-confidence in the current government are in vain," Ali al-Shalat told FNA on Sunday.

Earlier, a senior member of Iraq's State of Law Coalition had also revealed that certain Arab countries have hatched plots to increase insecurities in Iraq, and said they are seeking to push the government of Nuri al-Maliki into a failure.

"Certain Arab countries want to see the failure and overthrow of the current Iraqi government," Ali Allaq told FNA in 2011.

He referred to the financial and other direct supports provided by certain Arab countries to terrorist groups in his country, and said they also support a number of internal political streams to defeat the Maliki government.
