ERBIL, Iraq (Reuters) - Iraq's Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) said on Tuesday it would respect a decision by the country's federal court banning the region's secession.

"We believe that this decision must become a basis for starting an inclusive national dialogue between Erbil and Baghdad to resolve all disputes," the KRG said in a statement.
