Talabani’s return will be inductive to crisis breakthrough

BAGHDAD, Sept. 17 (AKnews) – The return of President Jalal Talabani will allow holding new dialogues in Iraq with ope of finding solutions to the political disputes, the Islamic Supreme Council of Iraq (ISCI) led by Ammar al-Hakim stated Monday.

Talabani is expected to return tomorrow to the country after spending more than a month in Germany for medical treatment.

The spokesmen of the ISCI Hamid Maaleh said “Talabani has good relations with most of the political blocs and he can contribute to the convergence of views.”

Maleeh echoed Kurdish MP, Muhsin Sadoun, who said yesterday that Talabani could end disputes upon his return by calling a national conference where all political parties meet to look at ways of putting an end to political disputes in the country.

Ruling State of Law Coalition (SLC) led by Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki has been in stalemate with major political parties in the country while the central government is also locked with Kurdistan Regional Government over several lingering issues including oil and gas, disputed areas and Peshmarga (regional guard) budget.
