BAGHDAD,— Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki did not ask Washington not to receive Kurdistan President Massoud Barzani during his recent visit to the U.S., said an MP in Maliki's party.

Iraqi media cited anonymous American and Iraqi sources as saying that the PM officially demanded Washington not to receive Barzani. However, after concluding his visit to Bulgaria Barzani headed to the U.S. and met with senior officials, including the president and his vice. Now he is in Hungary, the final stop of his trip.

"It is completely unlikely for Maliki to ask Washington not to receive Barzani," said State of Law Coalition (SLC) MP Abdul-Abbas Hamud.

Hamud described the reports as "fabricated…intended to stir the political atmosphere in the country and increase the disputes between Kurds and the SLC."

He said the Iraqi constitution has authorized Kurdistan president to travel to other countries and to protect his region and its political and economic interests.

SLC MP called on the Kurdish MPs and officials "not to listen to those media reports but obtain the [true] information from [identified] sources."

Hamud said the political parties use the media as a means to intensify the tensions between Kurds and the SLC "but the rooted and strategic relation between the two sides is too strong to be affected by such maneuvers and tricks.

"We admit there are disputes between us but they can be solved through dialog and negotiations…. they are not difficult disputes."

Tensions between Maliki and Barzani escalated as Barzani accused the PM of leading Iraq to an "unknown destiny." During his meetings with the U.S. officials,www.ekurd.net Barzani voiced concerns over recurrence of dictatorial rule in Iraq.
