It is Baghdad’s right to supervise Peshmerga arming process: KRG spokesman
The Spokesman of the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG), Safin Dizayee, stated Erbil is not against Baghdad’s supervision on the arming process of the Kurdish forces of Peshmerga.

Addressing a press conference, Dizayee said the federal government of Iraq has the right to be aware of the amount and the kind of arms would be delivered to the Kurdish forces.

He went on to say that the U.S. government is now seeking to create a balance between Baghdad and Erbil and sending arms to the Kurdish forces is an attempt to make the balance and that is what we expect as it would solve tensions between the two sides.

Dizayee’s speech refers to a U.S. Congress draft law that is seeking to send arms to Peshmerga and Sunni forces in Iraq without any supervision from Baghdad.
