BAGHDAD,— The Kurdish Blocs Coalition (KBC) stated Tuesday that the dispute between Baghdad and Erbil about Iraqi Sunni Vice President Tareq al-Hashemi has ended now that the VP has left Kurdistan autonomous region.

The KBC added that there is now no need to convene the meeting of three presidencies that the Kurdistan Region's President Massoud Barzani called for to discuss Hashemi's issue.

Hashemi fled to Kurdistan after the issuance of an arrest warrant against him by the judiciary in Baghdad on charges of running "assassination teams". He left the region last month for a regional tour that led him finally to settle in Turkey, where is currently still is.

Hashemi said in a press statement this week that he intended to return to Kurdistan last week,www.ekurd.net but some people advised him to extend his stay in Turkey.

Coalition spokesman Muayyid Tayyeb said: "The issue of VP Hashemi is no longer a point of dispute between Baghdad and Erbil. Baghdad called on the region earlier to hand over Hashemi when he was present in it.

"Hashemi's issue is limited between the National Coalition, the State of Law Coalition and Iraqiya List, which insists on resolving the issue from the political and judicial side."

Hashemi today called on Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki to remove his influence from the Iraqi judiciary and expressed his grief for the decline in the fairness of the judiciary.

Hashemi is a senior leader in Iraqiya List and served as vice president for two terms. He leads the Tajdid bloc. Hashemi says that he and his protection elements are innocent in relation to the charges against him, accusing the Iraqi judiciary of being subjected to the executive power after the refusal to transfer his case to Kirkuk instead of Baghdad.
