Erdoğan set to visit Iran for KRG referendum and Astana talks

Erdoğan set to visit Iran for KRG referendum and Astana talks

Tehran (ISNA) – Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan emphasized that he will travel to Iran on October 4 to discuss the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) referendum and Astana talks with Iranian officials.

Speaking at the Turkish Parliament's legislative year reception, the Turkish president said the roadmap that Turkey and Iran will follow in response to the controversial referendum and other regional developments will take shape after his visit, Daily Sabah reported.

“During the visit, I will meet with the Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and the Supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei,” Erdogan said.

Turkey's Chief of General Staff Gen. Hulusi Akar is currently in Iran for official talks.

Monday's illegitimate poll saw Iraqis in KRG-controlled areas, and in a handful of territories disputed between Irbil and Baghdad, including ethnically mixed Kirkuk and Mosul, vote on whether or not to declare independence from Iraq's central government.

Turkey, the U.S., Iran and the U.N. have all joined Baghdad in speaking out against the poll planned for the Kurdish-controlled areas of northern Iraq, saying the vote would distract operations against Daesh and lead to greater instability in the region.
