OFFICIAL STATEMENT 214
Referendum in Kurdistan
15/09/2017
The Government of Spain is concerned by the decision adopted by the Regional Government of Kurdistan to proceed with preparations to organise a referendum on independence.

This referendum is illegal under the Iraqi Constitution of 2005, which received widespread popular support, and will only serve to exacerbate division at a time in which all the people of Iraq should join forces to defeat DAESH once and for all, restore stability and re-build the country to the benefit of the whole population.

Spain backs a united, democratic and stable Iraq in which all legitimate demands are the object of constructive dialogue within the framework of respect for the Constitution and integrity of the country.
