Israel could recognize the independence of Iraqi Kurdistan in the event of its announcement by the authorities of Erbil, says a leading researcher of the Center for international security, IMEMO, expert club «Valdai» Stanislav Ivanov.

A referendum on independence autonomy of the Iraqi Kurdistan took place on Monday. According to the higher independent Commission for elections and referendum in Kurdistan for independence voted 92.7% of voters. The Iraqi authorities declared the referendum illegitimate and stressed that he would not negotiate with the regional government of the Autonomous Republic according to the results of the vote. Against the vote were made by the neighbors of Iraqi Kurdistan — Turkey and Iran and USA and the UN. Earlier, the Russian foreign Ministry said that Moscow in connection with the referendum on independence calls for solving all controversial issues between Erbil and Baghdad through dialogue and supports the territorial integrity of Iraq.

«Israel even officially recognize the independence of Iraqi Kurdistan in the event of its Declaration», — said the expert RIA Novosti.

As for the reaction of opponents of the referendum, Turkey and Iran, according to Ivanov, «they will calm down and everything will be the same.» «To fight with Iraqi Kurdistan, no one will, and to block the border too, it was tantamount to war, and under international law, such a blockade is a Declaration of war,» — said the expert.

He noted that the term «autonomy» does not apply in relation to Iraqi Kurdistan. «Although the Cabinet of Ministers of Iraq have long been demands from the authorities of the Kurdish autonomy to pass control of Baghdad to all border points of the region, and from foreign governments to cease cooperation with the Iraqi Kurdistan in the oil sector, it is already virtually impossible,» — said Ivanov.
