"We have taken some measures already with Iran and the Iraqi central government, but stronger steps will be taken", he said.
Israel has been among the only countries to openly support an independent Kurdish state, and many Kurds have openly welcomed Israel's support, drawing accusations from Arab leaders that last week's referendum was a Zionist plot.
