MESOP NEWS : DIE ALTEN FEINDE – IRAN & TÜRKEI GEGEN KURDEN

SPUTNIK – 21 Sept 2017 – Der Iran wird laut dem Vorsitzenden des iranischen Nationalen Sicherheitsrates Ali Schamchani im Falle der Durchführung des Referendums zur Kurdistan-Unabhängigkeit die Grenze zu diesem „Nachbarland“ schließen. Dem türkischen Experten Doğacan Başaran zufolge spricht aber alles dafür, dass Irakisch-Kurdistan nie unabhängig wird.

Der Experte vom Zentrum für politische Forschung und Krisensituationen in Ankara (ANKASAM) Doğacan Başaran verwies vor diesem Hintergrund in einem Interview mit Sputnik Türkiye darauf, dass sich die Türkei und der Iran bereits offen gegen das Referendum ausgesprochen hatten. „Das irakische Oberste Gericht fällte vor Kurzem das Urteil über das Aussetzen des Referendums im Land, weswegen es derzeit unklar ist, ob es überhaupt stattfinden wird”, so der Experte.

MESOP NEWS Special Report – What do Yazidis make of Kurdish independence?

Martyn Aim/IRIN – Tom Wescott  –  ERBIL, 19 September 2017 – IRIN NEWS

Part of an in-depth IRIN series exploring the challenges facing Kurdish people throughout the Middle East as Iraqi Kurds vote on independence . – Iraqi Kurdistan’s independence referendum hangs on tenterhooks, with Iraq’s prime minister promising military intervention should Monday’s vote lead to violence, the US, UK, and UN urging Kurdish leaders not to move forward, and the Kurdistan Regional Government’s parliament voting to do just that.With much of society apparently in two minds about the referendum, especially its timing, one group the authorities long believed they could count on for a “yes” vote was the Yazidis, a Kurdish minority singled out by so-called Islamic State for especially cruel treatment in a campaign the UN has deemed genocide.But Yazidis – displaced in different camps and mostly hailing from Sinjar, a contested area that could become a flashpoint for further conflict if the vote goes forward – are themselves divided on the independence question.

Iraqi Kurdistan PM: Kurds sacrificed enough for independence, Baghdad won’t stop the referendum

18 Sep, 2017 07:02 Edited time: 18 Sep, 2017 07:05  – The war with ISIS in Iraq is drawing to a close, but the day after will be no easier. With Iraqi Kurdistan going for an independence referendum, Baghdad may not be eager to accept the vote. The already volatile situation in the Middle East might be destabilized even further by the establishment of a Kurdish region – or, perhaps, help stabilize it instead. Will the price of Kurdish independence be too high? We ask Prime Minister of Iraqi Kurdistan Nechirvan Barzani.

Follow @SophieCo_RT –  Sophie Shevarnadze: Nechirvan Barzani, Prime Minister of Kurdistan regional government of Iraq, welcome to our show, it’s really good to have you with us.

Is this true?
