Iran said the idea of splitting Iraq is in line with an Israeli agenda, Press Tv reported.
Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Marzieh Afkham said Saturday that the Iraqi nation will by no means submit to the disintegration of the country.
“Undoubtedly the vigilant Iraqi people will not allow the Zionist regime and enemies of a unified Iraq to carry out their plots and realize their immature fantasies in the region,” Afkham noted.
Masoud Barzani, the president of Iraq's semi-autonomous Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG), urged the local parliament to set a date for a independence referendum.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has expressed support for the independence of the Kurdish region from Iraq.Last Mod: 07 Temmuz 2014, 11:08
