Turkey Sees Baghdad As Iraq's 'Legitimate Authority'

Turkey Prime Minister Binali Yildirim on Monday insisted the 'legitimate authority' for Turkey in Iraq was the central government in Baghdad, Turkey's Anadolu Agency reported.

Speaking in a live TV interview, Yildirim said the Kurdish Regional Government (KRG) independence referendum in northern Iraq was illegitimate and its results would be null and void.

"From now on, we will directly speak to Iraq's central government and decide accordingly," the Turkish premier added.

"(The vote) will not contribute to regional peace and stability, but it will increase already-existing tension and problems," he said.
