    Iraqi PM Abadi demands Kurds cancel secession bid as price for talks

    Iraq’s Prime Minister demanded Thursday that Kurdish leaders cancel the results of its independence referendum, rejecting a proposal from Erbil to “freeze” the outcome instead and begin talks over the future of the region.
    Speaking from the Iranian capital of Tehran, Haider al-Abadi said the Kurdistan Regional Government, which administers the semi-autonomous Kurdish region in northern Iraq, must comply with the country’s constitution.
    “We accept only the cancellation of the referendum and the adherence to the constitution,” Abadi said Thursday.
