The results of the Kurdish independence referendum will not be annulled, according to the chief of Patriotic Union of Kurdistan’s executive body on Sunday. Mullah Bakhtiar said that the committee wrote a five-point joint memorandum after meeting with the President of the Kurdistan Region Massoud Barzani and President of the Iraqi Republic Fuad Masum. Bakhtiar also said he is open to... Еще «unconditional» dialogue with Baghdad to discuss independence.
