The Iraqi Prime Minister Haider Al Abadi said on Thursday that the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG), the ruling regime of the autonomous Iraqi province of Kurdistan, is nearing its bankruptcy due to the prevalence of corruption among the officials and their families.

He called on KRG to recognize the authority of the central government in Baghdad and act in accordance with Iraqi Constitution.

In his statement, Al Abadi said Iraq should be able to demonstrate its ability of resolving its internal disputes in a civilized and democratic manner, namely as regards the issue of secession of the autonomous Iraqi province of Kurdistan. 

He also urged KRG to engage in a dialogue with the central government in Baghdad.
