BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:50 P.M.) – According to an official within Iran’s Expediency Council, Ali Akbar Velayati, the existence of a secessionist Kurdish state in Iraq would only be to the benefit of the United States and the “Zionist regime of Israel,” both of whom seek to “colonize and dominate” the Middle East.

The Iranian official clarified Iran’s position on the Iraqi Kurdish independence referendum by saying that Tehran stands by the parliamentary decision of the Iraqi federal government which rejects the sovereignty breakaway proposal.

Velayat stated that Tehran believes that the creation of an independent Kurdish state in Iraq would disrupt the country’s security and that only the US and Israel could benefit from such a separation.

Velayat added that Tehran is against any “intentional or unintentional” step towards the independence of a part of Iraq or a part of any other country in the Middle East by Kurdish secessionist political forces.

Finally, the Iranian official pointed out that the Iraqi government and majority of Kurdish people in Iraq want to see the country unified, that both are against the referendum and that this reality needed to be respected.
