Arab League's Ministerial Council rejects Kurdistan referendum


Arab League’s Ministerial Council has anonymously rejected Kurdistan Region’s independence referendum slated for September 25th, media reports revealed Wednesday. 

On Tuesday, Kurdistan Region’s President Masoud Barzani vowed to press ahead with a referendum on Kurdish independence despite a vote by Iraq’s Parliament to reject the move.

Earlier the parliament in Baghdad authorized the prime minister to “take all measures” to preserve Iraq’s unity. 

Kurdish lawmakers walked out of the session before the vote and issued statements rejecting the decision.
