Barzani claims victory in Kurdistan referendum

President of the Iraqi Kurdistan Masoud Barzani proclaimed the victory of the ''yes'' vote in the Kurdistan independence referendum during a televised speech to the nation held on Tuesday. Barzani called the neighboring countries to respect the will of millions of Kurds who voted in the referendum yesterday, with 88% of them opting for an independent Kurdistan according to preliminary results.

"You, the people of Kurdistan, you did not allow your will to be broken, and now, after your yes-vote that was a yes for independence and no to Anfal, chemical attacks and another genocide, we have entered a new stage,'' Barzani said.
