SULAIMANI, Kurdistan Region – The Commander of Iran’s Quds Force, Major General Qassem Soleimani, paid a visit to the tomb of former Iraqi president and PUK leader Jalal Talabani in Sulaimani on Saturday, laying a wreath, Aras Sheikh Jangi, Talabani’s nephew, told Rudaw.
 
“Soleimani was an old friend of Mam Jalal. He visited his grave and laid a wreath on it today as he couldn't attend his memorial,” Jangi said.

 

Soleimani wrote a note of condolence at the tomb, saying Mam Jalal was “a fighter who served nearly 60 years to achieve freedom for the Iraqi nation, including the Arabs Kurds, Turkmen, Shiites, Sunnis, Christians, and Yazidis.” 
 
“Talabani was a great man. New presidential positions didn't affect his greatness. Rather, it was he who gave greatness and honor to these positions. He was a person who often saved Iraq from disagreements and problems,” he wrote.

PUK is playing a dangerous game by their continued hosting of Kurdish enemies and propaganda. Too many egos within the party. Shameful to host someone pointing a gun at you yet pretending he's a friend. This guy is a wolf in sheep's clothing.

Paid a visit to the tomb or a visit to make a deal with Talibani's family. Our biggest weakness is the 2 families Barzani and Talbani. We need a unified, real, strong, democratic system

Of course why he wouldnt, after all J.Talabani and his family has been working for him and iran since day one, including planning and murder of our Great leader DR Gassemlu. Latest thing they did was when daesh attacked kirkuk and PDK peshmerga went to assist, puk members gut throat of one of PDKs peshmerga as a gift to this guy.
