Iran, Turkey vow to boost military ties amidst Kurds' independence move

Erdogan is also scheduled to meet Iranian supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei during his visit to the country.

"The independence referendum in Iraq's Kurdistan is a sectarian plot by foreign countries and is rejected by Tehran and Ankara", Iran's President Hassan Rouhani said, according to state TV.

"Iran, Turkey and Iraq are obliged to take serious and necessary measures", he said in reference to retaliatory measures adopted since Iraqi Kurdistan's disputed September 25 independence referendum.

"Holding the referendum in Iraq's Kurdistan will help the Western-Zionist-Arab front supporting Takfiri terrorism achieve its objectives and is definitely in contradiction to the interests of the Iraqi people, particularly the Kurds", Shamkhani said.

Ghasemi also says that the objective of Erdogan's trip is not only discussions on bilateral relations, but also about regional issues, including the Kurdish referendum. They have agreed to increase economic cooperation as well as joining forces to address major issues in the Islamic world.

The two governments fear the secession of Iraq's Kurds would stoke separatist sentiment among their own large Kurdish minorities and are eager to work together with the federal government in Baghdad to block it. Ministers of the two neighbors will also hold the fourth Turkey-Iran High Level Strategic Council meeting to enhance bilateral ties.

Abenomics, snap elections in Japan
The main opposition Democratic Party has been suffering in the polls, with only eight percent of voters planning to vote for them. Mr Abe said: "I expect opposition criticism is going to focus on (the scandals), and it's going to be a very hard election".

Turkey's leader is huddling with Iran's leadership in Teheran and the Iraqi government has demanded that the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) cancel the result of the referendum or face continued sanctions, worldwide isolation, and possible military intervention.

"We do not recognize the illegitimate referendum of the northern Iraqi regional government", said the Turkish top executive, on Wednesday.

Iran and Turkey, along with Russian Federation, are mediating a peace process aimed at ending the deadly crisis plaguing Syria for years.

The vote was strongly opposed by the central government in Baghdad, Iran, Turkey and other countries including the United States. Some of the accused said they did not believe the court could deliver a fair verdict and had been under political pressure.

"From the point of view of Iran and Turkey, Iraq and Syria are indivisible and independent entities, and we do not accept border changes", Rouhani said.
