Iraq dismisses Senate proposal for regional division

United States Senate last week presented a proposal to divide Iraq into three federal regions. However, the country’s main Shia and Sunni Arab political parties have dismissed the proposal, ABC News reported today, citing the BBC.

According to the article: “The resolution, passed by a big majority, called for Iraq to be divided into three federal regions, with the central government in Baghdad having only limited powers.

The article goes on to say: “But at a news conference, Shiite and Sunni politicians for once put their differences to one side to unite in their condemnation of what they see as unacceptable interference from abroad in their affairs.”.
