Erdogan: "Turkey to close borders with Iraqi Kurdistan soon"


President Recep Tayyip Erdogan says Turkey will soon shut its border and airspace to northern Iraq in response to a controversial referendum on possible secession of the semi-autonomous Kurdistan region, APA reports quoting Anadolu.

 

"Flights to northern Iraq have already been suspended, the air space and borders will also close soon," Erdogan said in a televised speech in Ankara on Thursday.

 

"How will you (the Iraqi Kurds) have imports and exports then? The clock is ticking against them," he added.
