A referendum on the independence of Iraqi Kurdistan is scheduled for September 25

72
The Iraqi Kurdistan Parliament held a meeting, during which it set the date for the referendum on independence. The MPs decided that the referendum will take place on September 25. Earlier it was reported that the holding of a plebiscite in Iraqi Kurdistan will be held no earlier than October.

Kurdish deputies made their decision, despite the warnings that came to Erbil from Baghdad, Ankara and Washington. Recall that the Iraqi authorities stated that holding a referendum while the antiterrorist operation is underway in the country is unacceptable. Official Baghdad now declares that the referendum in the Kurdish areas of the country considers unconstitutional.

A referendum on the independence of Iraqi Kurdistan is scheduled for September 25


Literally an hour after the deputies of the Iraqi Kurdistan parliament voted to hold the 25 referendum in September, a message came from Washington to Erbil about the need to reconsider the decision. As you can see, the United States no longer hide the fact that they are trying to interfere in the internal affairs of another country and dictate their terms to Kurdish autonomy.

From a letter to the United States in Erbil:
The United States does not support the intention of the regional authorities of Iraqi Kurdistan to hold a referendum. The referendum may distract from attempts to defeat the terrorist "Islamic State" (* prohibited in the Russian Federation). We strongly recommend engaging in a substantive dialogue with Baghdad.


At the same time, the United States was quick to recall that it was the United States that recently provided the Kurds with comprehensive military and diplomatic support.

    Everything is done for the collapse of Iraq. If the creation of Kurdistan begins, it will also hook Turkey and Syria. Another slaughter in BV will become inevitable. The Americans are trying hard to start a new conflict.

      First you need to establish statehood and peace, and then hold referendums. It is not a matter of permanently leaving one civil war in another. It is clear that the United States is the main instigator.

        This is not even a transition. This is an escalation of a whole bunch of civil wars moving into a new phase .. The participants are the same (minus those who have retired), but the alignment of roles is changing dramatically and new territories are being covered.

      Iraqi Kurds almost already have autonomy. They need independence. The referendum will be held and there will be a circumstance designated in international law as “the right of a nation to self-determination,” which will already be difficult to ignore. It’s just interesting how quickly the United States and its Six recognize the results of the referendum. For starters, this can be done by countries that are completely dependent on the United States, and the United States according to the scenario will frown and call some kind of Lithuania for "prudence."

        Kurds are a completely different matter. This people has existed for a long time and lives on its land occupied by Syria, Iran, Iraq and Turkey.

        On the contrary, this referendum was largely due to Erdogan. Together with Barzani, they are doing some tricky multi-doorway together. Turkey fully supports Barzani and the referendum in Iraq. And not only in words, but also in the army. Barzani invited the Turkish army and deployed Turkish bases in order to ensure security from the forces of Baghdad.

          Turkey against Kurdish referendum in Iraq
          Turkey expects the referendum on independence of Iraqi Kurdistan will be canceled. This was stated on Wednesday by Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu at a press conference in Baghdad. According to him, "the problems between Baghdad and Erbil should be resolved without violating the territorial integrity of Iraq."

          '' Erbil’s decision to hold the referendum is erroneous, and we stated this openly. Raising the flag of Iraqi Kudistan over the buildings of official and government institutions is contrary to the constitution of Iraq, ”Cavusoglu said.

          Iraqi Kurdistan will be responsible for the referendum on independence, Ankara said
          The Turkish Foreign Ministry called on the leadership of Iraqi Kurdistan to refuse to hold a referendum on secession from Iraq and warned that otherwise they would have to "pay the price," the Turkish Foreign Ministry said in a statement received on Thursday by RIA Novosti.
          The Turkish Foreign Ministry also welcomed the decision of the Iraqi parliament, which declared the referendum illegal.

          Turkey and Iran, where Kurds also live, expressed a common position that holding a referendum in Iraqi Kurdistan could provoke an increase in tension, and called for abandoning the initiative.

            oil is not so important for Erdogan, he has a different economic structure and other priorities, and you are looking at him from our oil-gas-pipeline bell tower.
            his task, as I think, is to maintain the neighbors in a state of permanent devastation, in which they have no production facilities, as a result of which they buy everything in Turkey - food, clothing, building materials, machinery, etc. and where they will add their second oil there, they’ll spend the money on Turkish industry goods anyway. neocolonialism such.

      Turkish media: Israel will send 200.000 Kurdish Jews to Kurdistan
      According to the Al-Monitor website, pro-government Turkish media claim that the head of the Kurdish Autonomous Region of Iraq, Masood Barzani, has entered into a secret agreement with the Israeli government.

      According to publications, after the September 25 referendum on the independence of Kurdistan, Israel intends to return 200.000 Kurdish Jews to their "historical homeland."

      So, Yeni Safak notes that Israel has become the only state that has expressed support for the referendum. Kurdish Jews, primarily those who occupy a prominent position in Israel, will need to help in state building.

    Why is everyone fooling around? The emergence of independent Kurdistan. extremely beneficial to Russia. This is a problem of Iran and Turkey (and they are not friends to us, and VERY provisionale allies).
    And Russia has a chance to be an arbiter in a future battle.

    In Syria, all tasks have been completed:
    - the base was preserved, and further strengthened
    -barmaleev gouging
    -influence reinforced
    - weapons tested and advertised
