ANKARA - The Kurdish Regional Government's proposal to freeze its push for independence is an important step but does not go far enough, Turkey's Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Thursday.

Cavusoglu was speaking a day after Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi, who visited Ankara on Wednesday, insisted that last month's Kurdish independence referendum be declared void.
