Salahaddin, Kurdistan Region of Iraq (KRP.org) – Kurdistan Region Presidency in a statement expressed its sadness and concern over the killing of journalist Mohamad Bidewi and extended its condolences to the family of the victim, who was killed on the 22 March.

The statement by the Kurdistan Region Presidency said, “it is unfortunate that following this incident, the Iraqi Prime Minister resorted to the inappropriate and foul expression of ‘blood for blood’ which is far from principles of rule of law, statesmanship, co-existence and democracy.

“On behalf of the people of Kurdistan, we believe it is important that this case be handled through the legal channels, away from illegitimate political whims. The people of Kurdistan have decided to live in a peaceful and fraternal way within Iraq. If Baghdad rulers don’t want this fraternity, and repeatedly create problems using various excuses, then let us sit down and end this problematic relationship.”
