ANKARA: An in­de­pen­dence ref­er­en­dum in Kur­dish northern Iraq could make the sit­u­a­tion in the re­gion worse and even lead to a civil war, Turkey’s For­eign Min­is­ter Mev­lut Cavu­soglu warned on Wed­nes­day. Iraq’s au­ton­o­mous Kur­dish re­gion has said it would hold a ref­er­en­dum on in­de­pen­dence on Septem­ber 25, brush­ing aside in­ter­na­tional warn­ings, in­clud­ing from Turkey, that it could trig­ger con­flict with Bagh­dad. – Reuters
