ERBIL, August 22 (AKnews) The head of the Kurdistan Islamic Union (KIU) faction said the national gathering among political parties in Iraq needs preparation and groundwork and this has not yet been done.

Najib Abdullah said now the efforts of political parties in Iraq begin for solving the political crisis in the country but he believes the efforts do not match the depth of the Iraqi political crisis. He added that preparation is the key to holding a national meeting.

Iraqi MP from the Kurdistan Blocs Coalition Khaled Shwani announced that the meeting between political forces will begin in Baghdad after Iraqi President Jalal Talabani returns.

Talabani has been in Germany for two months for medical treatment. In a press conference last Saturday he asked all Iraqi forces to hold a meeting to solve the current crisis in the country.

Shwani stressed: "All political parties in Iraq agree that they must solve the current. The Iraqi constitution, Erbil agreement, the eight points in Talabani's suggestion, the Erbil and Najaf meetings will all become a basis for the dialogue and suggestions to solve the crisis."

Shwani believes that the Iraqi political insecurity will be solved soon and the country will return to normality.
