Iraq's foreign minister is asking nuclear countries for help building an atomic reactor for peaceful purposes, saying the country has a right to use atomic power peacefully.Former Iraqi strongman Saddam Hussein's previous efforts to build a nuclear reactor were met with an Israeli airstrike in 1981 and years of suspicion about his nuclear intentions.Iraq ratified the treaty in 1969 .Kurds are an ethnic group with populations in Iraq, Syria, Iran and Turkey, and hold an autonomous region in northern Iraq.The central government views the vote as unconstitutional and divisive. Iraq's top court has temporarily suspended the vote and the country's parliament has also voted to reject it.
