Kurds offer to freeze independence referendum and seek ceasefire

The Kurdish Regional Government (KRG) of Iraq offered Wednesday to freeze the results of its independence referendum and open dialogue between Irbil and Baghdad based on Iraq’s constitution. After the Iraqi army with Iranian backing took control of 14,000 sq. km of Iraqi Kurdistan’s 50,400 sq. km, following its occupation of the Kirkuk oil center, the KRG called for an immediate ceasefire and halt to all military operations in the region.
