Barzani to Kurdistan neighbors: You never worried about Iraq’s unity, sovereignty

2017/09/16 | 19:05

(Iraq Now News)- DUHOK, Kurdistan Region –President Masoud Barzani has said that it is surprising to him that Kurdistan’s neighbors have become interested in the protection of the unity of Iraq, also adding that Erbil does not seek any problems with its neighbors.

Turkey and Iran who each have a significant Kurdish population in their countries have opposed the Kurdish referendum, with Ankara saying that they will officially announce their stance on September 22, just 3 days before the vote.

Both countries have asked Erbil to call off the vote.

“With regard to our neighbors, we want to have the best relations.

We don’t want for any problem to occur between us and our neighbors,” Barzani told a rally in the province of Duhok on Saturday evening.

“It has been 25 years that we have proved that we are a factor for peace, prosperity, and coexistence.

We are not a threat to anyone,” the Kurdish president continued.

“But one thing that is surprising to me is: I wish I knew since when have you become so worried about the territorial integrity of Iraq, the sovereignty of Iraq, and the constitution of Iraq? This is important to me since these days these [things] have become important to our neighbors,” Barzani asked rhetorically.
