Turkey will take "every measure" under international law if the Iraqi Kurdish independence referendum on Monday endangers Turkey's national security, the Turkish Foreign Ministry said Monday morning.

Turkey calls the independent referendum "null and void" and won't recognize the initiative because it lacks a legal basis and legitimacy in international law and the Iraqi constitution, according to a written statement released by the ministry.

The referendum threatens the peace and stability of Iraq and the entire region, the statement warned.
