"Kirkuk has never been and never will be Kurdish"

The other day I was reading through Kurdish media when I saw a comment by the Shia coalition that really outraged me "Kirkuk has never been and never will be Kurdish".

I was glad however that Kak Noshirwan Mustafa, replied with his no non-sense un comprimising Kurdish attitude, that he is reknowned for, by stating;
"Kirkuk is a central issue to the Kurdish movement. We could have agreed with the Iraqi government 40 years ago if we were ready to give up on Kirkuk".

It seems that this attitude worked, as today al-Jaafari agreed to meet all demands made by the Kurds, in a meeting held with Jalal Talabani and the Kurdish leadership, in Qelachwalan, just North of Sleymani, Northern Iraq.
