Barzani playing with fire: Turkish Deputy PM
Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdağ on Sept. 20 issued another warning from Turkey to the Iraqi Kurdish Regional Government (KRG) about the independence referendum slated for later this week, saying KRG President Masoud Barzani “playing with fire.”
“This is a dangerous path and it is not right. Barzani is playing with fire. That fire will first burn Barzani and will later burn others. The right thing is to give up playing with this fire, submit to common sense, and cancel the referendum,” Bozdağ said.
