Denies the Office of the President of the Republic, into, the validity of the news published in some media, and quoted the words of Vice President of the Republic Dr. Khudair Khuzaie about the reasons for the presence of President of the Republic is currently in Sulaymaniyah.
Affirming the invalidity of all that was said in the information note also that Dr. Khuzai was in Sulaymaniyah, a few days ago at the request of His Excellency the President of the Republic to attend the meeting President Balna˙ben, met with the president by his deputy, Dr. Khudair Khuzaie was not in the meeting touched on anything that relates to what is mentioned in the news .. We also alleged that the position of President, Mr. Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki is always as advertised and is known to all.
That the President of the Republic during this period was to continue its work of constitutional and national levels in the light of the responsibilities and functions through meetings ongoing with various parties and government bodies, parliamentary and party system and the various characters, and in light of what is known about President Jalal Talabani keen to contain the crisis and provide a common work areas and understanding the national official and commitment Constitution and laws.
