RNA - "This is in the interest of Israel and those who want to expand insecurity in the region," Rezayee told reporters on Tuesday.

 

The EC secretary underlined that Kurdistan needs security, development and progress; any kind of conflict would make them to lag behind peace and progress.

 

Rezayee reiterated that the region will face insecurity which would lead to Israel's ill-treatment.

 

Asked about Iran's approach to the referendum on Iraqi Kurdistan, he said, "We must preserve the territorial integrity of the countries and prevent the change of geographical boundaries."

 

In relevant remarks on Monday, Secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Ali Shamkhani warned that arrangement of a referendum for independence of Iraq's Kurdistan region will harm the Kurds and the entire nation in Iraq.

 

"Although this issue might be attractive in appearance but actually, it will isolate and pressure the Iraqi Kurds and weaken Kurdistan and finally the entire Iraq,"  Shamkhani said in a meeting with First Deputy Secretary of the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan Kosrat Rasul and Chief of Executive Body Politburo of the Union Mala Bakhtiar in Tehran.

 

Stressing that holding a referendum doesn’t meet the real needs and priorities of the people and runs counter to the Iraqi officials' policy, he warned, "Certain regional and trans-regional states want to weaken Iraq and the large countries in West Asia."
