Turkish FM insists on 'time limit' for KRG

Kurdistan iraq
A time limit should be set up for the northern Iraq’s Kurdish Regional Government (KRG) to reconsider from their “mistake” of holding an illegitimate referendum, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said Thursday.

“There must be a time limit,” said Cavusolgu told reporters in Paris following a meeting with his French counterpart Jean-Yves Le Drian.

He said the KRG had to take necessary initiatives to cancel the result of the Sept. 25 illegitimate referendum in the Kurdish-controlled areas of northern Iraq "within the given time".

“If necessary steps are taken within that time, then ok, but if not, then the demands and steps [made by] the Iraqi administration will be important criteria for us," he added.

Regarding French President Emmanuel Macron's initiative to mediate between Iraq and the KRG, Cavusoglu said Ankara supported all kinds of contributions for a solution to the issue between Baghdad and Erbil. Although, he also said he doubted that a single country could provide it.
