Iran

Iran asked Iraq to do more to protect border in wake of clashes with KDPI

By Rudaw 21/7/2016
-

An Iranian border police chief has accused Iraq of failing to protect the border and allowing Peshmerga of the Kurdistan Democratic Party of Iran (KDPI) to enter Iran from the Kurdistan Region and engage in conflicts with Iranian forces.

 

Mohammad Abbasi, commander in chief of Urmia border police, stated that he understood Iraq’s security forces were strained with the war on the Islamic State but expressed hope that they would be more diligent in guarding the border.

 

An Iraqi border official, Sherko Abdullah, denied the accusation but admitted that there were remote regions of the border that are inaccessible to the Iraqi border police.

 

Relations between Iran and the Kurdistan Region have deteriorated after KDPI Peshmerga, formerly based in the Kurdistan Region, entered Iran and have clashed with Iranian forces. The KDPI insists that the clashes have been instigated by the Iranians and the Kurds responded in self-defence.

Is the Iranian "police chief" a complete idiot? someone should have informed the imbecile that he was holding a meeting with the wrong people! Peshmerga are in charge of that border not the "Iraqi" police.

Lol. These incompetent Iraqi army members are too scared to leave Baghdad let alone come to Kurdistan and shoot at Kurdish warriors. 😂😂😂

I love how the Arabs don't put a Kurdish flag next to the Iraqi flag but Kurdistan raises a Arab flag next to a Kurdish flag. Smh.

Give them a few years, their Arab "brothers" will be the first to attack Iran when they're vulnerable just wait and see. Lowlife Iranians forgot who stood by them during 8 years of war! we paid the ultimate price for siding with Iran at a time no one was supporting them. Most of these Arab brothers were in Saddams army killing them in the tens of thousends. and they call us ungrateful!

Iranian did their biggest mistakes by helping kurds to defeat Isis. now this is the outcome, barezani who handed sanjar and mosel to isis is now teaming up with saudi arabia and Israel to create insecurity in area borders. I'm sure next time if kurdestan needs any help the Iranian will thinks twice before any helping.
