|Ayatollah Khatami warns against Kurdish independence from Iraq||
TEHRAN – Ayatollah Ahmad Khatami has warned against the consequences of holding a referendum on independence of Iraq’s autonomous Kurdish region.
“This conspiracy should be intercepted, because a new cancerous tumor, similar to Israel, will be formed in the region,” he said.
Masoud Barzani, the president of the Kurdish Regional Government, asked the local parliament on Thursday to prepare the way for a referendum on independence.
Khatami added that the organizers of the plot are aiming to disintegrate Iraq.
