ERBIL Cameron Sutton Steelers Jersey , Iraq, Sept. 24 (Xinhua) -- Iraq's Kurdish regional President Masoud Barzani on Sunday reconfirmed holding the referendum on the independence of the Kurdish semi-autonomous region as scheduled on Sept. 25.
"We have decided to hold referendum and we are going ahead whatever the price would be. We are not going to wait for unknown fate, and will not be subject to pressure and threats," Barzani said during a press conference in Erbil.
"I urge the people of Kurdistan to go to the ballot boxes to express their views without any problems and to maintain security and order during this democratic experiment," Barzani said.
However, Barzani said that the referendum "does not mean defining the borders. We want to open dialogue with Baghdad government to reach common understandings and to solve our pending problems."
On June 7 Joe Haden Steelers Jersey , Barzani announced his intention to hold a referendum on the independence of the Kurdish region from Iraq on Sept. 25.
The independence of Kurdistan is opposed by many countries because it would threaten the integrity of Iraq and because it comes as the Iraqi forces are in fight against the Islamic State militant group.
In addition, the neighboring countries of Turkey, Iran and Syria see that such a step would threaten their territorial integrity, as larger populations of Kurds live in those countries.

Charles Bradley Javon Hargrave Steelers Jersey , the soul singer whose robust voice and defiantly upbeat outlook won him stardom in his final years after a life of poverty, died Saturday from cancer. He was 68.
Bradley, who for years had scraped by as a James Brown impersonator, had pulled off another battle against the odds earlier this year when he triumphantly returned from cancer treatment.
But the disease had spread to his liver and he recently canceled months of shows. He died at his Brooklyn home surrounded by family, friends and bandmates, his publicist said.
"Mr Bradley was truly grateful for all the love he's received from his fans and we hope his message of love is remembered and carried on Sean Davis Steelers Jersey ," his Facebook page said.
After years of taking odd jobs across the US and drifting into homelessness, Bradley was discovered by the co-founder of Brooklyn-based Daptone Records, which put out his debut album in 2011 when he was 62.
With a rich, brassy voice that evoked Otis Redding coupled with the body-shaking screams of Brown and a relentless positivity, Bradley at last found commercial success.
"I always wanted this in my 30s and 40s, but I got it at the age of 62. It's bittersweet Artie Burns Steelers Jersey ," he told Esquire magazine.
His latest album, Changes, figured on several music magazines' lists of 2016's top albums.
A devout Christian who frequently invoked God, Bradley would descend from stage to hug fans and toss out roses from heaping bouquets as he urged listeners to devote their lives to love and racial tolerance.
Changes opens with Bradley's take on the patriotic hymn "God Bless America." In a spoken intro, Bradley acknowledged that he has endured "hard licks of life" but voiced conviction that "America represents love for all humanity and the world."
Abandoned at birth by his New York-based mother, Bradley spent his early years in Gainesville Maurkice Pouncey Steelers Jersey , Florida with his grandmother before an itinerant life that took him to Alaska, California, Maine and upstate New York, where he was a cook at a mental hospital.
Facing homelessness, Bradley returned in the mid-1990s to New York to reconcile and care for his aging mother.
He lived with his brother Joseph, a tax broker. But the stability was short-lived when Joseph was shot and killed by their nephew - a trauma Bradley turned into the song "Heartache and Pain."
"I went crazy; I just couldn't take it. I tried to run in front of cars - I ran in front of everything that was moving Cameron Heyward Steelers Jersey , but nothing would hit me," Bradley later told National Public Radio.
Bradley was 14 when he witnessed Brown's swaggering energy at Harlem's famed Apollo Theater.
"I saw him and was like, 'whoa,'" he later said, explaining that he learned to throw all of his energy into shows.
Playing Brown under the stage name "Black Velvet," Bradley had his break when he was spotted by Daptone co-founder Gabriel Roth whose label specializes in reviving retro soul and funk.
Returning to Gainesville to perform last year Ben Roethlisberger Steelers Jersey , Bradley said in a local interview that he saw in his music a way to "help humanity."
"I want to leave a legacy of myself that the world can say, 'Charles Bradley was a real person. He loved what he did, and he loved to entertain people, and he liked to give the best,'" he said.
