Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Wednesday he would tell Iraqi Kurdish officials later in the day that their decision to hold an independence referendum was wrong and that Ankara expects it to cancel the vote.

Cavusoglu was speaking at a news conference in Baghdad with his Iraqi counterpart before travelling to Erbil in northern Iraq to meet Kurdish officials later on Wednesday.
