Former Pakistani PM: Iraq’s partition should be in hands of people


The people of Iraq have the right to decide how to live, but partitioning should not create mass displacement and destruction of lives, said Pakistan’s former prime minister Shaukat Aziz on Tuesday.

“It is up to Iraq and Kurdistan to decide what they have to do, but the will of the people must be respected,” Aziz told Kurdistan24.

The former Pakistani PM was attending an international conference called “The Middle East: When Will Tomorrow Come?” held by the Valdai Discussion Club in Moscow.
