chattels: Former Iraqi prime minister, Nouri al-Maliki, has rejected allegations that he was responsible for the fall of Iraq’s second city Mosul to Daesh Takfiri militants last year. Speaking in a press conference in the Iranian capital Tehran on Monday, Maliki called into question the integrity of a recent report by an Iraqi parliamentary investigative committee,
which held him and a number of other senior Iraqi officials accountable for the setback. Instead, Maliki blamed Turkey and Iraq’s semi-autonomous Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) for the fall of Mosul, saying Daesh’s takeover took place after the KRG ordered Kurdish fighters to retreat from the conflict zone. chattels: www.veteranstoday.com/201...

Ministry spokesman Nariman Talib told Anadolu Agency that the move would be decided at an extraordinary meeting of the KRG’s parliament slated for Wednesday.
Earlier Monday, Parliamentary Speaker Yusuf Muhammed Sadiq confirmed to Anadolu Agency that the parliamentary meeting would be held on Wednesday. On Monday, MPs from 49 different Kurdish parties -- including the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK), the Movement for Change (known as “Gorran” in Kurdish), the Kurdistan Islamic Movement party and the Kurdistan Islamic Society Party (Komel) -- submitted a joint request for the parliamentary meeting.
However, Cafer Eminki, deputy parliament speaker and member of the political bureau of the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP), of which Barzani is the leader, has said the planned parliamentary meeting would not be constitutional without the approval of all parties in parliament. chattels: www.albawaba.com/news/ira...
