Baghdad (IraqiNews.com) The Speaker, Osama al-Nijaifi, headed to Erbil to continue his efforts to reduce tension between the Central Government and the Kurdistani Regional Government.

A statement by Nijaifi’s office cited “The visit to Erbil comes because the Premier, Nouri al-Maliki, phoned him requesting him to exert more efforts to calm down the situation after reports over deployment of Peshmerga forces in Kirkuk.”

“Nijaifi phoned the President of Kurdistan Region, Masoud Barzani, who confirmed the reports,” the statement added.
