United States seeks 'new Israel' in region, Khamenei says of Iraq Kurd referendum

United States seeks 'new Israel' in region, Khamenei says of Iraq Kurd referendum

Noting that today westerners along with the Zionist regime have written a new prescription for the region, he said that the U.S. and Israel have taken the new strategy of splitting regional states on agenda after ISIS scenario failed, but Iran and Turkey as the two major regional players will never allow a new scenario to come true, IRNA reported.

Ayatollah Khamenei further termed the development as an "incident", adding that Iran and Turkey must take any possible measures to confront with the incident.

Erdogan is in Iran discussing Kurdistan's referendum as well as bilateral relations.

On the economic front, Erdogan said he expects closer ties with Iran, as he announced an agreement to increase trade between the two countries from $10bn to $30bn.

"We regard the secessionist move in Iraq as detrimental to security of the region", Hatami said on Tuesday.

The Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) held a non-binding referendum on September 25 on secession from the central government in Baghdad in defiance of Iraq's stiff opposition.

Turkey also has sizeable Kurdish population -14 million, out of a total population of about 81 million - that resides in the southeast of the country and bordering Iraq and Iran's Kurdish territories.

"Some leaders of Iraq's Kurdistan region have made erroneous decisions which must be corrected", Iran's President Hassan Rouhani said after talks with Erdogan, visiting Tehran for the first time since 2015.

Asked how he survived for this long, the officer said, "Najar would keep on changing his appearance and would use wigs and move around meekly".

As the Iraq war unfolded in 2003, and later the crisis in Syria, Turkey grew concerned over American support to Iraqi Kurds.

Iraqi Prime Minster Haider al-Abadi ordered all airspace above Iraqi Kurdistan closed to commercial air traffic, until Masoud Barzani, president of the Kurdistan Regional Government or KRG, hands over control of the regions airports to Baghdad.

Akar arrived in Tehran on Sunday on an invitation from the Iranian chief of staff.

The two governments have taken opposing sides in the six-year civil war in Syria but relations have thawed this year with them both joining Russian Federation as co-sponsors of peace talks which began in Kazakstan in January.

Mr Erdogan said on Saturday that Iraqi Kurdistan "will pay a price" for the "unacceptable" referendum.

Erdogan's lawyer, who was present at the case, said that justice had been served. He is expected to meet with Iranian President Hasan Rouhani, Defense Minister Amir Hatami and head of Iran's National Security Council Ali Shamkhani during his visit.

Erdogan, in a translation on Iranian state television of his comments, warned of "stronger" measures to follow and said the autonomous Kurdish region in northern Iraq would remain "isolated".
