International flights from and to Iraq’s Kurdistan region halted at 1,800 local time on Friday. The ban was imposed by international airlines and at the request of the Iraqi government. Baghdad has rejected Kurdistan’s last week vote of secession as illegal and unconstitutional. Press TV’s Ali Mousawi tells us more about the heightened tensions between Baghdad and Erbil in the wake of the vote.
