ERBIL (Reuters) – Iraq’s Kurdistan Regional Government on Monday called on the international community to intervene and help lift sanctions imposed by the central government in Baghdad in retaliation for a September referendum on Kurdish independence. “The restrictive policies adopted by Baghdad against Erbil are in violation of Iraq’s obligations and responsibilities under international and humanitarian law,” the KRG said in a statement. “We call on the international community to intercede in urging Baghdad authorities to lift the embargo, without condition, on international flights.”
