The Kurdistan Regional Government’s Statement:

Baghdad to 'Freeze' Results of Independence Referendum

Wednesday, October 25, 2017 - 11:51

The Kurdistan Regional Government in a Wednesday statement has offered the central Iraq's government to cease fire, and to start a bilateral dialogue, expressing readiness to "freeze" the results of the region's independence referendum.

Based on the statement, the clashes between Iraqi troops and the Kurdish Peshmerga units would not give the victory to no one, but would have a negative impact on both sides and would "drive the country towards disarray and chaos," Sputnik reports.

The text of the statement is as follow:

"In order to fulfill our responsibilities and obligations towards the people of Kurdistan and Iraq, we propose the following to the Iraqi Government and the Iraqi and world public opinion: 1. Immediate ceasefire and halt all military operations in the Kurdistan Region. 2. Freeze the results of referendum conducted in the Iraqi Kurdistan. 3. Start an open dialogue between the Kurdistan Regional Government and Iraqi Federal Government on the basis of the Constitution," the statement said.
