BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:00 A.M.) – The Iraqi government will not seek a joint administration of the country’s borders with the KRG and Kurdish Peshmerga forces, Prime Minister Haidar Al-‘Abadi stated on Tuesday.

“There will be no joint administration of border-crossings; these will be controlled by the federal government,” ‘Abadi stated.

‘Abadi continued that dialogue with the Iraqi Kurdistan regime will begin once the independence referendum is annulled, not suspended.

“Dialogue with Kurdistan region can only be based on Iraq’s constitution & after the referendum’s result is annulled.”

“I received calls and messages from world leaders reaffirming their support for our measures to safeguard Iraq’s unity,” ‘Abadi added.
