The Kurdish people have a two million strong diaspora community, most significantly in Germany, Israel and France.
The unconstitutional referendum takes place on Monday in Iraq where it is expected that the majority of people will vote in favor of independence.
All major countries and international organisations, with the exception of Israel, have denounced the referendum.
