No talks on building U.S. military airbase in Erbil: deputy
A Kurdish deputy in Iraqi parliament denied reports that the U.S. is planning to build a military airbase in Kurdistan Region in north of the state.

A member of Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP), Shakhawan Abdullah, refuted any talks between Erbil and Washington over changing Harir airbase into a military one, adding that establishing the base neds Kurdistan’s parliament.

He further blamed Baghdad for lashing out at Erbil and stated the central government is always criticizing the Kurdish region, and Erbil is accustomed to the blames.

It is worth mention that KDP Foreign Relation Chief Himen Hawrami said on his Twitter page that Harir airbase will change into a military airbase in a very near future.
