Disintegration of Iraq, harmful for region: MoD Hatami

Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei receives Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in Tehran

"Now, all the air spaces will also be shut down; flights have already been banned". Who is going to come? Soon, the borders also will be closed. "How are you going to go in and out?" Erdogan said to a meeting in Ankara.

Last week, Kurdish authorities held a unilateral referendum on independence, which was approved by almost 93 percent of voters in the semiautonomous Kurdish region of northern Iraq. "The UN, the European Union, the Arab League and Saudi Arabia all pushed the Kurds to cancel the vote; Egypt and Lebanon have suspended flights to the region in its wake".

Kurdish media and social media were rife with complaints about the flight ban imposed by Baghdad, which, they said, had prevented larger global participation at the funeral. The Kurds called the move "collective punishment". At the same time, the central government's North Oil Co. has been shipping crude to Ceyhan through a Kurdish pipeline that connects with the Turkish link.

Erdogan is due to meet both his Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani and supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who has the final say in all matters of state.

The government imposed an global flight ban and other punitive measures on the Kurdish region, which voted overwhelmingly in favor of statehood.

"You only have Israel behind you".

Who gave you that right?

Tens of thousands of people gathered Friday for the funeral of Iraqi former president Jalal Talabani, in an emotional send-off for the veteran of the struggle for Kurdish self-rule.

Talabani said that Iraq, with its many different communities, was a "bouquet made up of several flowers".

Macron said dialogue "is the only path" and "France is contribute actively to mediation".

From Paris, the iraqi Prime minister has proclaimed to the mid-day "the liberation of Hawija".

"We demand the KRG take the necessary lesson from their mistakes and take steps to compensate for them as soon as possible", he said.

Iraq's Prime Minister, al-Abadi, has made clear that Bagdad is unwilling but not unable to resort to violence, raising the specter of armed confrontation. After the votes were counted, the KRG said that the "Yes" to independence option won at the polls, with 92.73 percent of voters opting to grant Erbil its own regime.

He urged the Kurdish Peshmerga forces in the disputed areas to work with the Iraqi security forces under the control of the central government Baghdad.

Last month, more than 90% of Iraqi Kurds voted to secede from Iraq and establish the country of Kurdistan. Iraqi forces launched a campaign there last month and expect a tough fight in an area that is hard to control.

Iraq's central government closed the airspace over Kurdistan to global flights, and Turkish President Recep Tayyib Erdogan threatened a total blockade.

Emphasising joint fight in Syria against ISIL and al-Nusra Front, Erdoğan said: "I am sure that as the result of this fight, we will help the oppressed Syrian people and common efforts to defend all the oppressed people of the world is our duty".
