People in the semi-autonomous Kurdish region of northern Iraq voted for independence on September 25 in a controversial referendum, amid rising tensions and worldwide opposition.

Chancellor Barzani praised the global support to start direct dialogue between Erbil and Baghdad to resolve the issues, calling the Iraqi government to respect the Constitution and have a quick, positive response to the Region's efforts to start dialogue.

The court is responsible for settling disputes between Iraq's central government and regions including Kurdistan. The verdict can not be appealed.

The Supreme Federal Court on Monday reaffirmed an earlier ruling that said the September 25 referendum was unconstitutional and that its results are to be annulled.

Speaking to the Tasnim News Agency, Hassan Kazemi Qomi pointed to anti-Tehran measures adopted by Riyadh in Iraqi Kurdistan Region and said over the past years, some reactionary governments in the region, including Saudi Arabia, have sought to infiltrate into Iran and undermine the country's security through supporting terrorism in Kurdistan.

Iraqi government forces and the Iran-backed Popular Mobilization Forces launched a surprise offensive on October 16 in retaliation. "The power of this ruling should now cancel all the results of the referendum". Government forces managed to wrest back control of the oil city of Kirkuk and other disputed territories.
