Iraq’s breakup announced officially
Baku, Fineko/abc.az. On the second day after the American occupation corps left Iraq it was announced officially about breakup of the country.
Deputy prime minister and leader of Iraqs Sunni community Tariq al-Hashimi who is hiding in Kurdistan from prosecution, has stated that efforts to unite Iraq ended in failure.
"Behind all this is Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki (he represents country’s Shiite majority). All efforts made to achieve national reconciliation and unification of Iraq ended in collapse," al-Hashimi claimed.
In turn, other deputy prime minister of Iraq Saleh al-Mutlaq expressed concern that the vacuum that resulted from the lack of political agreement that would lead to partition of the country.
"The partition will be preceded by a war t be triggered off because of the borders and natural resources," al-Mutlaq said.
Al-Mutlaq himself has been accused by the Prime Minister of disrupting the process of political settlement in the country.
During the dictatorship of Saddam Hussein the Sunnis, the minority population of Iraq (35%), played a major role in the country, but after the military invasion of the United States the Shiites have been dominating in power. Besides, the Kurds living in northern Iraq got the right to have their representatives in the government for the first time.
In the process of disintegration of the Iraqi nation, the country will split into oil and gas rich Kurdish north and Shiite south and Sunni central part. The Shiites will inevitably fall under the influence of the brothers from Iran, and Kurds will have to rely on the United States and Turkey.
