TEHRAN, Sep. 23 (Press Shia Agency) – Unauthorized news are spread that the referendum in Iraqi Kurdistan will not be held on the set date.

The Arabic edition of Russia’s news television network RT quoted Bafel Talabani saying on his Facebook page that the Kurdistan referendum will not be held on September 25. According to the same source the pol is postponed to a later time.

Meanwhile analysts surmise that a wedge is opening between the two leading political parties in Kurdistan.

On the other hand other sources have described the claim as a baseless hoax.

Mehrnews has not so far been able to verify the news.
