伊拉克最高法院星期一裁决,库尔德独立公投违反宪法。

这家法院说,有关决定应该取消公投的结果。在这次公投中,压倒性多数的参与者支持独立。

伊拉克中央政府反复表明,将视投票非法,最高法院上星期裁决,不允许任何地区退出伊拉克。

库尔德当局接受了稍早的有关裁决,并表示,这是双方解决分歧开展包容对话的开端。

今年九月公投以来,伊拉克部队收回了库尔德人赶走伊斯兰国战斗人员后多年占据领土大部的控制权。 库尔德当局和巴格达政府围绕争取独立问题继续争执之际,库尔德总统马苏德·巴尔扎尼下台。

Iraq's Top Court Rules Kurdish Referendum Unconstitutional

Iraq's top court ruled Monday that a Kurdish independence referendum was unconstitutional.

The court said the decision should cancel the results of the vote in which an overwhelming majority of those who participated supported independence.

Iraq's central government has repeatedly made known it saw the vote as illegal, and the Supreme Court ruled last week that no region was allowed to secede.

Kurdish authorities accepted the earlier ruling, saying it represented a starting point for inclusive dialogue between the two sides to resolve their differences.

Since the September referendum, Iraqi forces moved to reclaim control of much of the territory the Kurds had held for years after pushing out Islamic State fighters. As Kurdish authorities and those in Baghdad continued to spar over the push for independence, Kurdish President Masoud Barzani stepped down.
