Putin to visit Erdogan in Turkey tomorrow as Russia supports a united Iraq

The Kurdish issue will be high on the agenda.

Russia’s Presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov has confirmed that President Vladimir Putin will arrive in Ankara on the 28th of September to meet with his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

The two leaders already spoke over the phone in the aftermath of the Kurdish separatism referendum in northern Iraq, a vote which Kurdish separatists said attained a 91% yes vote. The vote was boycotted by Arabs and Turkomen and widely condemned by the international community.

Prior to the controversial vote, Russia,  urged Kurds to put the vote on hold in order for the provocative move to be replaced by dialogue. Russia continues to urge for a calm approach to the referendum’s aftermath.

The Russian Foreign Ministry released a statement, reading,

“The Russian party believes it to be of utmost importance to avoid anything that risk to further complicate and destabilise the Middle East, which is already overloaded by conflict situations”.

The Foreign Ministry added that Russia supports the territorial unity of Iraq and its neighbours and that the present crisis “can and should be resolved with constructive and respectful dialogue aimed at finding a mutual form of coexistence in a unified Iraqi state”.

Putin’s visit with Erdogan is expected to cover a cooperative approach to the Kurdish issue in Iraq. Turkey has vowed to implement a strict economic blockade of northern Iraq and has not ruled out full-scale military intervention.

Eddy can go and….himself. Putin has the right idea of at least acknowledging the kurds. Between Syria and Iraq it would be wise for the kurds to secure a peace. They may not get their kurdistan but if they are willing to respect and maybe support the various governments of syria and iraq and vice-versa (maybe help with the running of each country) then there is hope. Turkey is a dead issue, but a flea in the ear of Iran is worth a try. To end up with peace in two countries (and the yanks disavowed of a proxy) is… Read more »

The US wants to wedge Kurds and Kurd held oil in Iraq and Syria as leverage against both governments. Kurds will allow and encourage US bases in Iraq and Syria.

So, the issue is not separation and independence. The issue is oil and US bases.

if the Russians and Turkey agree to cutting off Kurdish export of oil it is all over for the Kurds (and the US and Israel) in both Iraq and Syria. This probably wouldn’t have to be done forever to be effective. Three months would probably do the trick. You would then have the Kurds begging Iraq and Syria for confederacy.

Putin’s way is the only one correct! The Middle east has been deliberately overloaded. It must calm down
