Pakistan fully supports Iraq’s unity, territorial integrity: FO Spokesman

Nafees Zakaria

ISLAMABAD: Foreign Office Spokesperson Nafees Zakaria on Monday said that Pakistan fully supports Iraq’s unity, sovereignty and territorial integrity. It is therefore deeply concerned over the referendum held in the Iraqi Kurdistan region on 25 September 2017.
In response to a media query, Nafees Zakaria said that the referendum violated the Iraqi constitution and therefore lacked any legitimacy. It also presents a challenge to peace and security of Iraq and the entire region. Pakistan joins Iraq and its neighbors, along with the international community, in its opposition to this referendum.
He said Pakistan reaffirm full support for the Government and people of Iraq. “We are deeply concerned at attempts aimed at threatening the territorial integrity of Iraq or any other country in the region.”
