(MENAFN - Arab News) BAGHDAD: A spokesman for Iraqi Kurdish President Massud Barzani said Thursday national premier Nuri Al-Maliki had 'become hysterical" and should step down after he accused the autonomous region of harboring militants.

Al-Maliki 'has become hysterical and has lost his balance" said the statement published on the Kurdish regional presidency website in English.

Addressing the premier it continued: 'You must apologize to the Iraqi people and step down. You have destroyed the country and someone who has destroyed the country cannot save the country from crises."

The virulent statement came after Maliki charged that the Kurdish regional capital Arbil was harboring militants fighting his government including from the Islamic State group which declared a caliphate in Iraq and Syria last month. 'We cannot be silent over a movement that exploited the circumstances and expanded" Maliki said Wednesday infuriated by a Kurdish announcement that plans for an independence referendum were to speed up.

Kurdish troops moved into a swathe of disputed areas after federal security forces withdrew as an alliance of militants swept through northern Iraq last month. The Kurdish peshmerga fighters were in some places the only rampart against the insurgents but Barzani has since vowed they would never leave the disputed areas again.
