The leader of the Iraqi Turkmens Arshad Salehi has met with Deputy Foreign Minister of Turkey Umid Yalcin.

Arshad Salehi talked to about his visit.

According to the Turkmen leader, the key issue of the parties was the problems of Kirkuk Turks and the election fraud in the Iraqi parliamentary elections.

"At the meeting with Mr Umid Yalcin, the current situation in Iraq, the relations of Iraq with neighbouring countries and Kirkuk Turks were discussed at the meeting. In particular, I gave Mr. Yalchin detailed information on fraud in the vote counting," he said.

Mr. Salehi has stressed that the vote counting process was still ongoing:

"Kirkuk is the most sensitive region in the Middle East. Therefore, no one in Kirkuk can carry their own international policy or political party bargaining over us. Otherwise, stability in Kirkuk would be disrupted. As the result, it's affecting both Iraq and the Middle East. "

Notably, parliamentary elections in Iraq were held on May 12. It is alleged that election frauds were tolerated in the Turkmen populated areas. Under the leadership of Prime Minister Abadi, a commission including intelligence, security forces and police has been established. At present, the ballot boxes in Kirkuk are being counted manually.

The final decision has not been disclosed.
