A Mes­sage from the Pres­i­dent of the Kur­dis­tan Re­gion

The Kurdish Globe - - FRONT PAGE -

Af­ter the events in Mo­sul and the ar­eas neigh­bor­ing the Kur­dis­tan Re­gion, and as a re­sult of the col­lapse of the Iraqi army, a se­cu­rity vac­uum has been cre­ated and a large num­ber of the people of the Ninewa prov­ince have headed to the ar­eas un­der the con­trol of the Pesh­merge forces. Kur­dis­tan Re­gion Pesh­merga forces have been de­ployed to ar­eas aban­doned by the Iraqi army in or­der to pro­tect the people of Kur­dis­tan, eth­nic and re­li­gious com­mu­ni­ties in these ar­eas, pub­lic in­sti­tu­tions, and to fill the vac­uum.

I call on the Asay­ish and Pesh­merga forces to pro­tect the Kur­dis­tan bound­aries and the liveli­hoods of the people of these ar­eas and to pre­vent any vi­o­la­tions and abuses.

We also re­as­sure our people that our Pesh­merga and se­cu­rity forces will not let the se­cu­rity of Kur­dis­tan to be jeop­ar­dized in any way.
