Iraq's Supreme Federal Court ruled on Monday that no region or province can secede from the country, reacting to a Kurdish vote for independence, a court spokesman said.

(reuters) -- The ruling was a response to a government request to put an end to any "wrong misinterpretation" of the constitution and assert the unity of Iraq.

The court is responsible for settling disputes between Iraq´s central government and regions including Kurdistan.
