Kurdish independence referendum in Iraq

Kurdish independence referendum in Iraq “wrong choice” – Iranian FM:
The intention of the Kurdistan Regional Government to hold an independence referendum in Iraq would undermine the country’s security, Iran’s Foreign Minister Javad Zarif told a conference in New York. “We believe [a] referendum is not the right choice,”Zarif stated Monday. “It would be limited to [the] Kurdish population, and the impact on Iraqi security would be disastrous.” The majority of ethnic Kurds live in the territories of four countries in the Middle East– Iraq, Iran, Turkey and Syria. Iraqi Kurds enjoy significant autonomy from the central government in Baghdad but seeks to form an independent state.
