No state but Iran has protested against referendum's principle: KDP official
A member of the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) has stated that no country but the Islamic Republic of Iran has protested against the principle of the region’s planned referendum to divide from Iraq.

Hoshyar Zebari added that the referendum is held on the principle of democracy in the other countries of the world.

Commenting on recent remarks by the Iraqi former Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki who warned the Iraqi Kurds over holding the referendum which has been set for September 25, Hoshyar Zebari told a press conference that Maliki is living in a world which is far from the realities and he is better to study the UN Human Right charter and other international agreements.

According to Sky Press Zebari further commented on the stances by the regional states over the referendum and stated that no state but the Islamic Republic of Iran has expressed its opposition to the principle of the referendum.

He further stressed that the region still seeks to hold the referendum on the set date.

In a meeting on June 7 between the political parties of Kurdistan Region, except Gorran and the KIG, it was decided that the referendum of independence would be held on September 25 and people of the region and the disputed regions would vote if they want to remain a part of Iraq or have their own independent state.
