Iran Closes Airspace to Iraqi Kurdistan Region

Iran Closes Airspace to Iraqi Kurdistan Region
Iran's Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) announced on Sunday that it has closed its airspace to all flights to and from the Iraqi Kurdistan region at the demand of the Baghdad government.

"All Iranian flights to Soleimaniyeh and Erbil as well as flights from the Iraqi Kurdistan region passing through the Iranian airspace came to a halt at the demand of Iraq's central government," SNSC Spokesman Keivan Khosravi said.

He said that the decision was taken after the failure of Iran's good-will political efforts to convince the Iraqi Kurdistan region's officials not to hold an independence referendum.

Khosravi added that the hasty decision by some Kurdistan region officials will limit the Kurds' power as an actor and in constructive talks and will create serious challenges for Iraq's sovereignty and the security of the Kurdish people, Iraq and the region.
