Parl't votes on final version of resolution on Kurdistan referendum


Iraqi Parliament votes on Wednesday on final version of resolution on Kurdistan Region’s independence referendum in a session attended by 184 MPs. 
The parliament formed on Monday a committee, composed of security, defense, legal, oil and foreign affairs committees’ representatives, to take a decision on the region’s referendum. 
On Monday, Kurdistan conducted an independence referendum, defying Baghdad and ignoring intense international pressure to call it off, amid fears that it would spark fresh conflicts with Baghdad and with Iraq’s powerful neighbors, Iran and Turkey.
