KRG to pay price over independence referendum: Erdogan

KRG to pay price over independence referendum: Erdogan

A senior Iranian official says the recent secession plebiscite held in Iraq's semi-autonomous Kurdistan region will help boost Takfiri terrorism across region while jeopardizing the interests of both the Iraqi and Kurdish people.

A ban on global flights into and out of the Iraqi Kurdish region took effect on Friday but the Iraqi central government says local Kurdish authorities should also give back the control of airports and border crossings.

Hezbollah fighters are now fighting along with other Iran-backed militias and the Syrian army against Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) fighters in eastern Syria.

Baghdad declared the ballot illegal and suspended flights in retaliation.

But his interventions in Syria were just dabbling in other people's problems; an independent Kurdish state in northern Iraq, he thinks, would be an existential threat to Turkey itself.

Now businesses near the Turkish border fear their crossing may also close. Regional powers, including Iran, Iraq, and Turkey, were less measured, issuing economic, security, and diplomatic sanctions against the KRG-most of which have not yet materialized.

Nasrallah noted his group's arch-enemy Israel had come out in support of Kurdish statehood and described the referendum as part of an American-Israeli plot to carve up the region.

"It also presents a challenge for the peace and security of Iraq, and the entire region", he added.

Iraq's Shiite Arab-dominated parliament called on al-Abadi to deploy troops in the disputed territories, including the oil-rich city of Kirkuk, but al-Abadi said Wednesday he didn't want a "fight between the Iraqi citizens".

"The region must stop the escalation and provocation in areas seized by it", spokesman Saad al-Hadithi said in a statement. We opened our borders to hundreds of thousands of them so that they could save their lives.

"The referendum must be annulled and dialogue initiated in the framework of the constitution".
