3:03 am
neighboring countries for dialogue but he remained defiant he said the wishes of iraq's kurds should be respected but. yes in the beginning we agreed on the constitution and partnership and the role of the kurdistan region in the establishment of iraq is very clear but you violated every agreement there is no need for anger and threats you have only yourself to blame. the results of the referendum on not binding but the kurdish president wants a mandate to push the bank that government into negotiations towards independence for iraq's kurds. neighboring countries such as turkey fearful of the effect such a drive towards independence by the iraqi kurds could have on their own large kurdish populations have threatened sanctions and even not ruled out military intervention against the kayleigh gee. that seems unlikely at this stage but the referendum is certainly increased tensions across the region already struggling to

3:26 am
british have not been entirely realistic about bret's it and that they have believed to date that they can leave the e.u. and yet retain all the benefits of membership post breck's it having said all that i think donald will six last remarks to us will be discouraging for the british he said that from his point of view sufficient progress had still not been made for the talks to move forward and this is very important the european union has drawn a line in the sand and said that it wants progress to be made on the question of the irish border the very sensitive issue of those three million or so european citizens who live in the u.k. and what will happen to their rights post breaks it and the size of the brics it divorce bill in crude terms how many billions of euros britain is going to pay out as it leaves the european union and that there has to be enough progress in those three areas before the talks can move forward to areas which the british want to
