Iraqi Kurdistan starts preparations for referendum on independence

The President of the Autonomous Kurdistan Massoud Barzani instructed his party to start preparations for the referendum on independence for the province from Iraq, reports the website orientalexpress.info with reference to the Agency Rudaw.

According to the source, Barzani instructed the «Democratic party Kurdistan» in cooperation with other political movements to develop a mechanism for a national referendum on independence.

Barzani ordered the Kurdish Parliament to prepare the draft of the referendum in 2014, but that decision was temporarily shelved because of the war against the terrorist organization «Islamic state».

The government of Iraq is strongly opposed to the referendum for secession of Kurdistan, but has no way to influence this process, according to the publication.
