Qa-14, 19 March 2017, Statement Of The Spokesman Of The Ministry Of Foreign Affairs, Ambassador Hüseyin Müftüoğlu In Response To A Question On The Kirkuk Governorate’s Request From The Kirkuk Provincial Council For A Motion To Raise The Krg Flag Beside The Flag Of Iraq Throughout The Official Buildings

Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 19.03.2017
The Kirkuk Governorate’s request from the Kirkuk Provincial Council for a motion to raise the KRG flag beside the flag of Iraq throughout the official buildings is disconcerting.

The process that should be followed with regard to the disputed internal boundaries is set by Iraq's Constitution. Unilateral acts on the status of Kirkuk that fail to follow this process would jeopardize the reconciliation and stabilization efforts in the country. Such attempts run the risk of eroding the multicultural identity of Kirkuk, which embodies the social, cultural and economic wealth of Iraq.
