Israeli PM states support for independent Kurdish state

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu

A Foreign Ministry statement released on September 14 also welcomed the Iraqi parliament vote that rejected the planned Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) referendum on September 25 as unconstitutional, reported Hurriyet Daily.

Al-Maliki did not say why the governor was sacked, but the move came after Kirkuk's provincial council voted to take part in a referendum on Kurdish independence slated for later this month.

Ankara has in recent years forged strong ties with the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) in northern Iraq but is extremely wary of any move towards independence by the region.

Turkey, Iran and Iraq's central government are all opposed to the vote.

Kurds had pushed for a state of their own since the conclusion of World War I when Kurdish-populated areas were split between modern-day Iraq, Iran, Turkey and Syria as boundaries across the Middle East were redrawn. He also denied that his party has voted against holding the independence vote in Kirkuk.

Israel supports the creation of a Kurdish state.

"He is an elected governor of the council of Kirkuk", said Hoshyar Zebari, a close adviser to Kurdish President Massoud Barzani.

Kalin on Thursday said: "There will absolutely be consequences for this referendum decision", without elaborating further.

It described the KRG leadership's "increasingly emotional statements" in favor of independence as "alarming".

Safeen Dizayee, a spokesman for the Kurdish regional government in Iraq, did not respond directly to Netanyahu's comments, but appeared to welcome them.
