Kurdistan referendum is message of fight for right, justice - Barzani

Kurds have conducted Kurdistan independence referendum in September to send a message to the world about the Kurdish fight for right and justice, head of Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) Masoud Barzani confirmed on Sunday.  

During a meeting with senior officials, politicians, and members of his party in Dahuk's Bahdinan area, he called for holding the general elections in the region to solve Erbil-Baghdad crisis.

Barzani also called on the Kurdish government to continue its duty in preserving the rights of all the factions in the region.

This comes as the crisis in Kirkuk has escalated. Peshmerga forces have been fending off attacks launched by the Iraqi forces. 

Tensions between the two sides over the future of Kurdistan have been high since the Kurds voted for independence in a September referendum. 

The oil-rich Kirkuk Governorate has emerged as a flashpoint in the crisis as it is claimed by both sides.
