Turkey and Iran Discussed Kurdish Independent Referendum

VOA News

Turkish Chief of General Staff Gen. Hulusi Akar visited Tehran on October 2 to hold talks with his Iranian counterpart Major Gen. Mohammad Bagheri, as regional measures against the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) intensify following the Sept. 25 independence referendum, Hurriyet reports.

 "Turkey and Iran are two friendly countries that have shared common values for centuries. We are improving our cooperation against existing threats and risks," Akar said in a joint press conference alongside his counterpart.

Turkey and Iran have developed a "joint stance against the illegitimate referendum by the KRG," said Bagheri.

"We share the same ideas on the territorial integrity of Iraq and reject the [KRG] referendum," he added.
