PM Yıldırım says KRG responsible for upcoming events in the region – News Scan




Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım issued a stern warning Saturday, saying the Kurdish Regional Government (KRG) would be “responsible for the upcoming events in the region” after the controversial independence referendum that took place last Monday.



In a public address in the northwestern Kocaeli province, in the Marmara region, Yıldırım said that the KRG would pay a price for the illegitimate referendum and its administration will be the only one responsible for the things to come.

The illegitimate poll had faced widespread opposition from most regional and international actors, many of whom had warned it would further destabilize the region and distract from the ongoing fight against Daesh.

“There are not only our Kurdish brothers living there,” he said. “Lots of other ethnic groups are also living there. The KRG, without asking those people, is playing with fire with a greedy attitude.”
