Iraqi Parliament votes against Kurdistan Independence Referendum

WAAR-DUHOK:

The Iraqi parliament voted on Tuesday to oppose Kurdistan independence referendum planned to hold this month prompting a walkout by Kurdish lawmakers.

Speaker Salim al-Juburi, a Sunni Arab, said the vote required the government to “take all steps to protect the unity of Iraq and open a serious dialogue” with Iraqi Kurdish leaders.

Kurdistan president Massoud Barzani and representatives of the region’s political parties declared the historic referendum in June.
