In the last meeting of the supreme body to hold a referendum in the Kurdistan region, which was held in early August, it was agreed to send a delegation to Baghdad under the supervision of Massoud Barzani (President of the Territory) and Kuzrat Rasul (Vice Chairman of the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan and Vice President of the region), to discuss the issues of referendum and secession .
“This delegation will come to Baghdad in a few days to negotiate the mechanisms for holding the referendum,” said Majid Shankali, a member of the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP).
“The delegation will carry a message explaining that the referendum will not harm Baghdad, but will ensure its security and stability in the future.”
The Kurds seek to achieve their goal – the Kurdish state through dialogue and research and communication with the rest of the partners, but “in the case of the other party’s refusal to reject, we will proceed with the referendum as it is a natural right of the people of Kurdistan and guaranteed by the principles of human rights and the United Nations and international law. According to Shankali.
