Kurds offer joint border deployment as Iraq threatens military operation: Iraq’s Kurdistan region said on Thursday it has offered a joint Kurdish-Iraqi deployment at a strategic crossing with Turkey, with participation of representatives from the US-led coalition helping fight ISIS.

The offer was revealed hours after Iraqi armed forces accused the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) of delaying handing over control of Iraq’s borders with Turkey, Iran and Syria and threatened to resume operations to capture Kurdish-held areas.

The KRG’s Peshmerga Affairs, or defense, department said the offer was part of a five-point “deconfliction” proposal made to the Iraqi government on Oct. 31.
