The legal expert, Ali Al-Tamimi, explained that the intervention of the UN Security Council in the internal affairs of Iraq between the center and the region is considered a violation of sovereignty and an implicit recognition that the region has become a state.
Al-Tamimi told Al-Maalouma, "The intervention of the Security Council between the region and the central government violates the general principles of international law and the Charter of the United Nations, because the Council does not interfere in inter-state problems."
He added that “Iraq is a federal country, not a confederation, and therefore the region is part of Iraq, and the Security Council cannot intervene between Baghdad and Erbil except with the consent of the two parties in accordance with Article 33 of the United Nations Charter when a conflict occurs between states, and therefore the Security Council’s intervention is considered an implicit recognition that the Kurdistan region has become Country".
And he indicated that "the Security Council cannot interfere between Baghdad and Erbil, especially since UNAMI is located inside Iraq, and
therefore this intervention opens the door to other international interventions,
in addition to the fact that the government is a caretaker and does not have the right to grant approval for the intervention, and Parliament should intervene to solve problems with the region." through the constitution.
He explained that "the intervention of the Security Council is a violation of Iraq's sovereignty, which necessitates the President of the Republic to move towards the United Nations to prevent interference in internal affairs." finished 25
