Iraqi Kurds Pledge to Respect Court Ruling Banning Secession

Iraqi Kurds Pledge to Respect Court Ruling Banning Secession Iraqi Kurds Pledge to Respect Court Ruling Banning Secession

It followed a controversial referendum on the secession of the Kurdish region, which was held on September 25 in defiance of strong objection from Baghdad and Iraq's neighbors, particularly Iran and Turkey.

The Federal Court rulings are final and can not be contested by higher judicial authorities.

In spite of an overwhelming "yes" vote, the referendum is not legally binding. As Kurdish authorities and those in Baghdad continued to spar over the push for independence, Kurdish President Masoud Barzani stepped down.

The KRG, which governs Iraq's autonomous Kurdish region, said in a statement it would "respect the November 6 ruling by the supreme federal court" which declared that no Iraqi province could secede from Baghdad.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergi Lavrov after receiving the Iraqi Foreign Minister Ibrahim al-Jaafari, in a press conference on October 23, said that his country was not closing its consulate in the capital of the Kurdistan Region, but that the mission was nevertheless subordinate to the Russian Embassy in Baghdad.

The statement is seen as the latest efforts by KRG to start a dialogue with Baghdad that can lead to a peaceful breakaway.

Iraq deemed the referendum unconstitutional and warned there would be consequences.

Among the steps was an offensive by Iraqi government forces and the Iran-backed Popular Mobilisation Forces that took back the oil city of Kirkuk and other disputed territories from the control from the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) last month. They fear that the vote could spark independence sentiments among Kurdish populations in their own countries. "We will take action", Abadi said at a news conference. Reuters, in one of its analysis had also disclosed that U.S. was also supportive of a separate Kurdistan in the region.
