Relations with the Federal Government of Iraq

The Kurdistan Regional Government is the governing authority of the federal Kurdistan Region of the Republic of Iraq, as stipulated by Section Five of the Constitution of Iraq. Since the fall of the previous regime, the KRG has staunchly promoted a democratic, pluralistic, federal Iraq at peace with itself and its neighbours, making every effort to support a stable and peaceful Iraqi state that respects the rights and the wishes of its citizens.

The Constitution of Iraq clearly delineates the rights of governorates and federal Regions, and the KRG remains unwavering in its adherence to the Constitution as the highest authority in the land. The KRG continues its good faith effort to resolve a number of unresolved issues with the federal government.
