The Kurdistan Region will go ahead with its much-talked about public vote on independence this year and there will be no turning back, the head of the country’s influential Security Council Masrour Barzani said Wednesday denouncing what he called efforts that want to delay the vote, tentatively planned for the end of 2017.

“We will not listen to those who find pretexts in order for the referendum not to take place. We won’t listen to them as there is no turning back and no second thoughts,” Barzani said in a defying speech at a youth gathering in Erbil Wednesday.

“The process towards independence has already begun. We are currently taking steps toward it and God willing, I am assured that we will arrive there in a short period. The referendum will be held this year according to what has been discussed and planned,” he added.

Barzani’s remarks were seen as response to earlier statements from other Kurdish factions which have demanded the reactivation of the regional parliament before holding the referendum.

(Prediction - the US will back Turkey over the Kurds and not let Iraq break up. The Kurds are screwed - killed, to save a country they don't want to be part of)
