Tel Aviv: Israel supports the aspirations of the Iraqi Kurdistan for independence, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said.
"Israel supports the legitimate efforts of the Kurdish people to achieve independence," the statement said.
On Wednesday, June 7, the Autonomous Iraqi Kurdistan set a date for holding a referendum on the independence of the region on September 25, which the Turkish authorities have already called "a serious mistake." The UN also said that it will not monitor the conduct of the referendum.
On July 25, the European Union issued a statement before the referendum on the independence of the Iraqi region of Kurdistan with strong support for the territorial integrity of the country.
In turn, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Iraq on July 7 stated that the Kurdish communities will spread fear after their referendum on independence.
