[size=13]KDP: Iraqi Kurdistan not to abandon idea of referendum on independence[/size]
Moscow: Iraqi Kurdistan will not turn down the idea of holding a referendum on independence, which will be held once the region is safe from the threat of Islamic State militants, Xosawi Bebekir, a representative of the Kurdistan Democratic Party in Moscow, said on Tuesday. In March, KDP leader Massoud Barzani had reiterated the intent of the Kurdish region to hold the referendum by October 2016. “As for the issue of the Kurdish independence, Kurds are not going to abandon the idea of holding a referendum. The referendum will be held, but as was said, now the top priority is providing security of Kurdistan and the removal of Daesh further. Without safety guarantees, it is hard to hold a referendum,” Bebekir told reporters. sputniknews.com | Ekurd.net
