No: 356, 21 November 2017, Press Release Regarding The Decision Of The Federal Supreme Court Of Iraq On The Krg Referendum

Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 21.11.2017

On the 6th of November, the Federal Supreme Court of Iraq took a decision that the Iraqi Constitution does not allow for any component in the country to secede from Iraq.

In a new decision which was taken on November 20th, the Court has decreed that the KRG referendum is unconstitutional and its entire results should be annulled.

This decision has confirmed the illegitimacy of the referendum, which has been stressed all along by the majority of the international community, including Turkey.

In the upcoming period, our expectation is full abidance by the said decision, and avoidance of actions and attitudes that would prejudice the political unity and territorial integrity of Iraq.
