BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:35 P.M.) – The Iraqi Prime Minister, Haider Al-‘Abadi, demanded the KRG regime in Erbil give Baghdad full control of the airports and borders in Iraqi Kurdistan, Al-Sura News reported.

‘Abadi warned that if the KRG refused to adhere to this demand, Baghdad will close-off the borders and airspace over Iraq, making it difficult for Iraqi Kurdistan to resume commerce.

The KRG’s leader, Masoud Barzani, has yet to respond to this demand from Baghdad.

The Iraqi Premier’s demand comes just 24 hours after the Kurdistan independence referendum.
