ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – Iran’s parliament is holding a closed session on Wednesday to discuss the Kurdistan Region. 

Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif will address the legislature, presenting a report on recent developments in the Kurdistan Region, according to Iran’s state media. 

Iran has joined Iraq and Turkey, taking a united stance to condemn Kurdistan’s independence referendum. 

“We will not accept changing borders in the region,” President Hassan Rouhani said last week during a joint press conference with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in Tehran. The two, who have expressed support for Baghdad and a unified Iraq, threatened to isolate the Kurdistan Region.

Foreign Minister Zarif attended the funeral of Kurdish leader Jalal Talabani in Sulaimani last week. While there, he told reporters that Iran “is an everlasting friend of the Iraqi people, including the Kurds of this country,” according to Tasnim news agency. 

He said Iran does not blame the Kurdish people for the “strategic mistakes made by certain individuals.”

The parliament will also discuss the nuclear deal. US President Donald Trump is expected to refuse to certify Iran's compliance with the deal in a speech this week.

'Everlasting Friend'? I'd hate to see what they're like as an enemy!

Your water problems seem to be political, not a result of a changing climate, which is also a political issue and not a proven fact.
