Baghdad-Erbil talks underway for delaying Kurdistan Independence referendum

US Special Presidential Envoy for the International Coalition to Counter ISIS Brett McGurk announced that talks are under way with Erbil and Baghdad to postpone the Kurdistan Independence referendum and to solve the pending problems between both sides.

In a statement, he said that US announced that the referendum is not appropriate at this time and it urged the Kurdish people to reconsider this decision.

He confirmed that US desires to continue the fruitful cooperation between Peshmerga forces and Iraqi forces to achieve the final victory against ISIS.

McGurk warned  that the referendum could be dangerous in the  disputed areas as ISIS terrorists are near theses areas.

The Kurdistan Region set September 25th to hold a referendum on the region’s independence.
