President: Kurdish autonomy fears Baghdad may use weapon against it
Azerbaijan, Baku, Nov.28 / Trend A.Taghiyeva /
Kurdish autonomy fears that the central government of Iraq may use weapon against its citizens if tension remains in the relations between Baghdad and the autonomy, Iraqi President Jalal Talabani said in an interview with "Al Arabiya".
However, according to Talabani, Kurdish autonomy is not going to separate from Iraq, despite the problems between them.
Clashes periodically have occurred between Iraqi government forces and armed groups of Kurdish autonomy since last week. A civilian and 12 Iraqi army soldiers were killed as a result of such clashes on Nov.20.
