BAGHDAD, Iraq,— A lawmaker from a leading Shiite parliamentary bloc called for a probe in setting up camps to train Syrian Kurds in Iraq's semi-autonomous region of Kurdistan, an Iraqi official newspaper reported on Thursday.

The state-run al-Sabah newspaper quoted Hussein al-Assadi as saying that "We called for the Council of Ministers and the Council of Representatives (parliament) to investigate the issue of opening training camps for Syrian Kurds by the regional government of Kurdistan.

"What Barzani said about the existence of training camps to train Syrian Kurds in the (Kurdish) region is unconstitutional and contrary to the international norms," Assadi, a legislator from Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki's State of Law parliamentary bloc said.

"Such act is considered interference in Syria's internal affairs," Assadi said, adding that the Kurdish leaders in Kurdistan persist to act like an independent state separated from Baghdad central government.

Assadi's comments came after Massoud Barzani the president of Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) confirmed the presence of a training camp for Syrian Kurds in Iraq's northern Kurdish region and stressed that they will be sent to the Kurdish areas in Syria to fill any possible "security vacuum" as the Syrian security forces retreat.

"We have a good number of the young Kurds who fled their cities in Syria. They have been trained," Barzani said in an interview with the Qatar-based al-Jazeera satellite channel.

"The region (Kurdistan) do not want to interfere directly in the situation in Syria, but we militarily train those Kurdish young men who defected from the Syrian army and resorted to Kurdistan, so they may be able to protect their areas in their country," he added.

On Wednesday, the directorate of Immigration of Kurdistan's Duhok province said it has received up to 11,000 Syrian refugees looking to flee their country's ongoing violence.

Earlier, the Kurdish authorities said they have prepared camps for Syrian refugees who cross the Syria-Kurdistan border,www.ekurd.net and that the Kurdish regional government is cooperating with international and some local humanitarian organizations to offer various aids to the refugees who are mostly Kurds came from Syria's Kurdish cities adjacent to the Iraqi Kurdistan region.
