Stating the referendum in Iraqi Kurdistan as a threat Khamenei said: “Iran and Turkiye should take every precaution in the face of these events. The Iraqi government also needs to implement the decisions taken seriously on this issue. Perspectives of America and Western states on this issue is totally different from the view of Turkiye and Iran. They always want to keep an irritating vehicle against Iran and Turkiye. So the approaches of American and European cannot be trusted at all.”

Stating that a lot of enemies expend energy to keep Turkiye and Iran from the critical issues in the region, Khamenei, “External powers, and especially Zionist regime try to establish a new Israel in order make new conflicts.

Erdoğan lastly said that the US, France, and Israel want to dismantle the countries in the Middle East region: “They planned this for Syria, and the cooperation of Iran and Turkiye on this issue is very important.” (ILKHA)
