ITF: we reject the affiliation of Kirkuk which is an Iraqi city with a historical and cultural Turkmen identity with any entity.

The internet issue of El Somaniya News published on  Sunday 30 December 2012 contained sentences by Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri El Maliki saying “Some Turkmen say that Turkey has said that they will not object to Kirkuk being bound to Kurdistan”.

The Iraqi Turkmen Front declares to the public that we reject the affiliation of Kirkuk which is an Iraqi city with a historical and cultural Turkmen identity with any entity.

Until today we have not heard a Turkish official make any kind of statement regarding the affiliation of Kirkuk with Kurdistan.

As ITF we believe that Kirkuk is a matter for Iraq to solve through dialogue and that no group living in Kirkuk can assume the will of another group.
