Kurds urge unity against common enemy Iran

By Rudaw 22/10/2016
-

Iranian Kurdish political parties believe that forming a joint front to merge their separate enclaves is necessary in order to face their common enemy - Iran. But they have not been successful in their attempts, as of yet. 

  

Abdullah Muhtadi, leader of the Komala Party of Iranian Kurdistan, has attempted twice this year to melt the ice. The last time was two days ago.

 

Muhtadi said his party was ready to begin talks with other parties unconditionally.

 

“We could do work together in different ways. First, forming a Kurdistani front is something that we have been working on with others for a long time and it should no longer be delayed. Second, holding a national convention of Eastern Kurdistan to bring together all the leaders and political parties. Third, increasing the degree of cooperation between ourselves in terms of Peshmerga activities. Lastly, the parties at least should have a joint platform,” said Muhtadi.

 

No Kurdish party or organization in Iran has rejected working together.

 

Ibrahim Ali Zada, secretary of the Iranian Communist Organization, told Rudaw that a merger of Kurdish parties in Iranian Kurdistan is significant, but they have to first find some unity politically between the Kurds.

 

“We should find a way to be unified and together in our political work. Parties who haven broken away in the past should merge with each other now and increase talks between each other,” said Ali Zada.

 

The head of the Kurdistan Democratic Party’s relations department told Rudaw that his party is open to any kind of political work with other parties.

 

“We are open to any call for cooperation and forming a joint front,” said Karim Saqizi, believing that “we have a common enemy and common land. Therefore we should work with each other for the future of Iranian Kurdistan.”

Turkey must support South Azerbaijan and Kurdistan. Kurds and Turks can gain this friendship. Weaker İran means strong Turkey and Kurdistan.

The Kurds in Iran, Turkey, and all other countries must unite and form an independent Kurdistan.

The land is country of Iran/Persia. Doesn't matter who or what tribe you are. If you have problem living in Iran and causing problem for all other Iranian, you need either to resolve your problems with appropriate communication and/or just move to somewhere that you might become happy. Just as simple as that.After all if someone suppose to claim my homeland,it's got to be PERSAINS.
