KRG to respect Supreme Court decision to ban secession

Iraq's Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) said on Nov. 14 it would respect a decision by the country's federal court banning the region's secession.

"We believe that this decision must become a basis for starting an inclusive national dialogue between Arbil and Baghdad to resolve all disputes," the KRG said in a statement.

The Iraqi Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) has found itself increasingly isolated after holding a non-binding independence referendum on Sept. 25, opposed by the central Iraqi government in Baghdad as well as Iran, Turkey and Western allies.
